hold its first meeting on Monday, 
October 1 at 7:80 p.m. in the Old

of making plans for the fall se-

Dr. Hutfh P. Baker 



President Baker, in his opening 

message at Convocation this morning, 
said, in part: 

"As the eollege opent its 83rd year, 
in tl.c .i .;. year of peace, we must 
at the ; . ' ) t millions 
of American men a d women in uni- 
form still at war on every continent 
a:i<! over the NVn sear,. During the 
war years, I always emphasized the 
imports ce of ui it;, in all of our 
thinking and nction I stil' emphasize 
unity, but I urge that it shall not be 
confused with conformity — conformi- 
ty to any regulations or rules or even 
laws suggested by an aggressive mi- 
nority in the country who are trying 
to build a wall around this country 
which would become barriers to co- 
operation and satisfactory living with 
the other rations of the earth. 

We are very proud of the record 
of this College in the war. More than 
2800 members of our College family — 
members of our college staffs, alumni, 
both men and women students — have 
been, and still are in the armed ser- 
vices. We are all very humble when 
we think of the more than 50 mem- 
bers of our College family who have 
given their lives on the battle front. 
"In this audience today are a few 
of the great host of veterans, and in 
the next two or three years, we are 
hoping that we may have many more 
veterans at this college that they may 
prepare themselves effectively for the 
years ahead. For all at the College, 
I extend particularly cordial welcome 
to the veterans who are no--»* here 
and who will be with us before the 
year is over. 

The ASTKP is still in effect on 
campus. These students are our 
guests and we must all cooperate ful- 
ly in making their program here a 
successful one. 

"To the new Btudei U a. t' <■ Col- 
lege, I should like to make a f < w s in- 
gestions. Work hard and do your 
work well. Don't waste time and ener- 
gy on unimportant things which will 
not contribute to your preparation 
for the years ahead. Learn to think 
soundly, and be normal in all of 
your human relationships. Take part 
in the kind of recreation that will 
keep you physically fit. C i tivate 
your spiritual life. Help us to keep 
the Campus a clean and healthy place, 
morally as well as physically. Try 
to be good citizens on the Campus. 
Learn of our college traditio"s and 
customs. a"d be frie"d'y and cooper- 
ative at a'1 times. Ke^p in mind that

the former divisions of the same 
names, The Division of Physical and 
Biological Sciences became the School 
of Science. A Dean v. ill head each 

School. Bngineering, which has for- 
merly been a department of the Col

Three Profs Help Army 
In Overseas Education 

Three members of the Mass. State 
faculty have volunteered to help the 
('. S. Army officials in their special 
effort to give officers and enlisted 
men in the European theatre who are 
awaiting redeployment, the oppor- 
tunity for vocational and academic 
training. Their purpose was to estab- 
lish several G. I. University Study 
Centers which would offer a wide 
variety of courses. In order that this 
plan might be successful, it was 
necessary to enlist the help of instruc- 
tors and professors throughout this 

The volunteers from State are: 
Professor Robert P. Holdsworth, head 
of the Forestry department, and ve- 
teran of two wars who is instructing 
at Shrivenham, England; Professor 
Arthur P. French, Pomology, who is 
stationed at Biarritz, France; and 
John N. Everson, assistant professor 
of Agronomy, who is at the Univer- 
sity Center in Florence, Italy.

readjustment remarking that "life on 
the campus will not be easy; it will 
not be easy for the teacher or the ad- 
ministrator, for the veteran, the war 
worker, or those recent high school 
graduates to which class most of you 
belong. But the college must re-dedi- 
cate itself to the development of 
strong men and women, intelligent, 
emotionally sturdy, sensitive to com- 
munity need, equipped with a deep 
and penetrating insight into the mean- 
ings and the values of living. These 
are the men and women the world 
will need for leadership and coopera 

a broad, general, culture' education 

that should be the mark of every col- 
lege graduate. Specialization of the 
junior and senior years has been 
built upon this foundation. The lower 
division recognizes this uniformity of 
objective of the first two years and 
will try to preserve it under a school 

The lower division will attempt to 
accomplish several things for the stu- 
dent during his first two years at the 
'ollege. It will provide a curriculum 
that will give him a background of 
knowledge and understanding of the 
world in which he lives. A counseling 

tive efficiency in the period of recon- ! and testing service will be set up to 
ciliation and reconstruction." I Motet him in making a wise choice of

ocracy in meeting its challenge, des-

of study in the lower division the stu- 

ed with this seemingly impossible task dent may pass into the upper division

self made enabled our citizens to 
adapt themselves and to carry out the 
new plans courageously and intelli-

Machmer said, "The college must re-

ter correlation of work within the 
divisions. A land grant college differs 

I from one of liberal arts or technology 
in the diversity of its offerings and, 
therefore, the more cosmopolitan 
group of students that it attracts to 
the campus. Agriculture, horticul- 
ture, home economics, physical educa- 
tion, science and liberal arts are ma- 
jor fields of equal importance. They 
all train men and women for the sev- 
eral pursuits and professions of life. 
On the other hand they do have dif- 
ferent interests and objectives and at- 
tract different types of personalities 
to their respective fields. The best or- 
ganization for a college with such di- 
verse interests is one that recognizes 
these several subject matter groups ! 
and gives them a reasonable amount 
of autonomy. I ' the be' inning divi- j 
sions seemed to do this. 

The history of the land grant co'- ;

It is a significant step in the evolu-

therefore, that its work is now to be 
organized on the school level. 

The organization of the lower and 
upper division is also a forward ste« 
that should accompany this change tr

Beanies, Duckings 

by John Mastalerz 

It's blossom time again this year at 
MCS, according to the Senate. Fresh- 
men "beanies" have blossomed forth 
this fall as boy's Hazing goes into 
full swing this week. 

Along with the traditional "bean- 
ies", freshmen must keep off the 
middle walk of Stockbridge, salute 
the Senators, learn the college songs 
and cheers, and serenade the various 
girl's dorms and sorority houses at 
6:80 A.M. Attendance is always 
taken for further reference at Senate 
Pond Parties. 

One of the commands heard every 
morning, when the boys serenaded 
Butterfield OB Monday, Lewis and 
Thatcher on Tuesday, and the soror- 
ities on Wednesday, was — "Assume 
the position", WHACK!! a paddle has 
found its target. One should not get 
the idea that paddle swinging is the 
most important event of each morn- 
ing serenade, because paddling is 
done only when senate rules an 

broken repeatedly and deliberately. 

AthoUgh the Senators do M] paddle 
swinging is fun. 

For the i:i.sistar.t individuals who 
do not believe in folowing rules set by 
the Senate, the traditional Bond 
Parties will be held for each and every 
violator. Many of the men of the 
class of '48 can testify to the fact 
that Pond Parties are fun (for the 
upperclassmen) and also wet. Invita 
tions are sent to all members of the 
freshmen class whom the Senate 
desires to see. Dress accordingly. 

The Senate has made Hazing 
optional to all freshmen who are 
veterans. The hardships of war and 
the discipline received in the army 
will take the place of regular hazing 
because the Senate believes that these 
men have already undergone a much 
more severe "hazing" fighting for 
Uncle Sam. Other freshmen should 
realize this fact, and go through 
Hazing with smiles and a song (well 
learned) in their hearts Remember, 
someday freshmen become upper-

This morning at convocation our 
guest speaker was Col. Charles Wel- 
lington Furlong, who spoke on the 
"Passing of the Old West". Mr. Fur- 
long is an explorer, author, and lec- 
turer. Born in 1874 at Cambridge, 
Massachusetts, he was the first Am- 
erican to explore in Tripoli, and the 
first to cross the heart of the Tierra- 
del-Fuego. He has ridden the range in 
Montana and Oregon and lived with 
the Blackfeet and Crow Indians. Dur- 
ing the first world war, he was a mil- 
itary aide to President Wilson and af- 
terwards a delegate to the peace con- 
ference. Mr. Furlong is also an artist 
for he has illustrated hooks, been head 
Of the Art Department at Cornell and 
President of Massachusetts of Mass- 
achusetts Normal Art School. He has 
explored the wilderness of Dutch 
Guiana, won the world's bull-rirftno 
championship, produced the field 
hand-hooks used by American and 
Allied forces, found the last survivor 
of the Livingstone expedition, 
was the first white man to live 
Pygmies (Ituri Forest, Congo in 
19:10 ).

Tarns and Placards 
Marks of Hazing 

by Pauline Tanguay 

Monday, October 1st, the freshmen 
women donned white tarns, twelve by 
twelve name cards and removed all 
traces of makeup in response to the 
orders of their "superiors, the sopho- 
mores", who this week of hazing have 
the right to make freshmen recite 
jingles, sing songs, jump the numerals 
on the walks and say "Umbriago". 
The freshmen are also keeping 
clear of the Stockbridge and Library 
middle walks, giving the names of 
ten upperclassmen when asked and 
saying "hi" to everyone they meet 
on campus. If the;, do not know the 
person's name they substitute with 
"hi Jane" or "hi Jo.-". 

Tuesday the girl's of '40 appeared 
in pigtails with bright colored bows. 
On Wednesday their golden locks dis- 
appeared completely beneath bandanas 
which were worn under their tarns. 
The girls carried stuffed animals and 
dolll just to add "that certain touch" 
to their outfits. 

The girl's big MUrprioe came when 
they were aroused at five thirty this 
morning to serenade the various hous- 

M .hi campus before breakfast. The 
girls who had not obeyed the hazing 
rules Monday, Tuesday and Wednes- 
day WOW given the opportunity to 
sing solos and dance.

Safety Program 

"Tlu- lights go OB Bgaill all over the world"— and Massachusetts 
State College is still in the dark! It has long been a student gripe 
thai all campus walks are not sufficiently lighted. While some im- 
provement has been made during the last two years, there is still 
much to be done. With girls occupying the Lewis and Thatcher 
dormitories for the first time, the need for the lighting of walks 
approaching the dormitories is more apparent. Already this year, 
an accident has ocurred on the walk leading up from the highway 
to Thatcher Hall— although it is true, that this accident was not 
serious, it does highlight the presence of a potential danger. 

The danger, moreover, is twofold. The walk leading to the dorm- 
itories via the infirmary road, is so dark that the road itself is in- 
distinguishable. If for no other reason, this road should be lighted 
for emergency calls to the infirmary. 

Among other unlighted stretches are the walks extending from 
the library to the end of the campus on Lincoln Avenue, the road 
to Butterf ield by way of the President's house, and the path along 
the highway which divides the campus. With the enlarged enroll- 
ment this year, a great many students are living off campus who 
have occasion to use the Lincoln Avenue road frequently. Consid- 
er, also, that there is no lighted sidewalk for students returning 
from town to Lewis, Thatcher, and the Abbey along the main 
highway. It is inevitable that more accidents will occur if the light- 
ing situation is not further improved. 

For many years, the Collegian has campaigned and is still cam- 
paigning for the construction of a sidewalk along Fraternity Row 
extending from the Pi Beta Phi house to just beyond the Sigma 
Delta Tau house. Editorials, letters to the editor, and petitions 
from all campus groups have been the life-giving plasma which 
has kept this campaign ^oing, yet nothing has been done to remedy 
the situation. More cars, most have poor tires, are on the road be- 
•ause of the lifting of gas rationing; there is more student traffic 
due to the enlarged enrollment at the college; speeding is prevalent 
because there are no signs warning drivers that they are approach- 
ing a campus zone— all of these contribute to a constant menace 
of dangerous accidents. 

Every year, this topic arises only after a serious accident occurs, 
iuat as it has now. But the issue is soon submerged in complacency. 
Will it always come to that end or will some definite action be ta- 
ken to prevent further mishaps? It would seem imperative that a 
sidewalk should be built, warning signs should be erected, and 
speed laws should be enforced. 

Peace and Chaos 

Liberation of conquered nations has 
not always resulted in peaceful ad- 
ministrations. This was seen some 
months ago when Greece was freed 
by British Invading forces. Misunder- 
standings arose between the various 
partisan forces and chaos resulted in 
the form of open warfare. 

Having lived for several years un- 
der foreign despotism, liberated peo- 
ples are reluctant to accept a return 
of the status quo. This has been es- 
pecially true of the colonial posses- 
sions of the overrun nations of Eur- 
ope. In recent days riots have been 
reported in French Indo-China, India, 
and in some parts of Java. The situa- 
tion in Indo-China seems to be rapid- 
ly reaching the proportions of an open 


The state of tension in French 
Indo-China was to be expected. The 
native Annamese saw the Japanese 
invade and occupy their country with 
almost no resistance on the part of 
their French masters. France itself 
was conquered and defeated. During 
the occupation of their country, the 
native Annamese have had much time 
to think over their status as a colon- 
ial possession of a defeated power. 
Suddenly the Annamese see the Japs 
quit tin- war and a token force of 
French soldiers return to French Indo- 
China. A colonial people who have 
gone through so much are justified 

in demanding the severance of ties 

with the mother country of France. 

The natives demand independence;: 
the masters reply with troops. The 
same old cycle over and over again. 

Obviously in this enlightened world 
of peace something fundamental is 
in error. And the whole subject of 
world peace hinges on the matter. The 
peoples of the world must have the 
right of self-determination, and this 
includes colonial powers as well as 
sovereign nations.

pan is so detailed a task that the 
United States has proposed an Allied 
Commission to formulate occupational 
policies. The Commission has been 
agreed to by Great Britain, Russia, 
and China and will meet in Washing- 
ton in the near future. 

Such a commission has been long 
overdue. Gen. MacArthur, a brilliant 
strategist, handled the surrender and 
occupation with calmness and resolu- 
tion. His appointment as Supreme 
Commander in Japan was a good one, 
for the Japs have always respected 
autocratic rule. But because the Gen- 
eral is not experienced in civilian 
administration, some rash predictions 
and statements have come out of 
Supreme Headquarters in Toyko. The 
lack of coordination between the mil-

To the Fditor; 

In welcoming the college students 
nothing was said, as far M 1 know, 

to those either wilful or moronic 

groups who will use the street as s 

k and do it several abreast. 
Such circumstances as the fact that 

there may be ■ sidewalk on only one 

side of the road to the other will not 

resurrect the person who was too 

careless, nor lessen the feelings of 
any car driver involved Should we 
erect a little stone momument dedi- 
cated to the young man killed while 
walking in Pleasant Street one night 
last year and label it plainly "You 
may be next"? What percentage of 
the students are so stupid or so will- 
ful that they insist personally on be- 
ing the guinea pig to test the state- 
ment that sometime in the next few 
years, .perfcajM .tWi .year, another 
Student will be killed or injured 
walking in the streets? 

This does not apply to marching 
columns of men In the daytime when 
both the platoon leaders and the 
motorists seem to use discretion. 
However, the hill down past Marshall 
Hall, or the hill Up Fast Pleasant 
Street, or any part of the main 
road, especially at night or just be- 

fort the first morning classes, con- 
stitutes a real though unnecessary 

hazard. Grammar schools have safety 
patrols, does a college campus need 

policing? The undersigned, a bicyclist 
not often either motorist or pedes- 
trian, has no ax to grind except to

Professor Walter W. Chenoweth, 
former head of the Department of 
Horticulture Manufactures at MSC, 
died on August .'i. after a short ill- 
ness. Funeral services were held on 
August (I at the North Congregational 
Church, North Amherst, and were at- 
tended by all members of the depart- 
. ut. Dr. Griffiths and Maurice Car- 
ey served as bojirers, and Dr. John 
J. Powers as usher. The department 
mourns the passing of this great man, 
not only for his part in its founding, 
but even more for the spirit of friend- 
liness which he instilled, making it 
possible for undergraduates, graduate 
students, faculty and research men 
to come together in his food tech. 

He came to the college in 1912 as 
instructor and assistant professor of 
pomology, and was soon at work to 
fulfill the dreams of 1'rof. Sears, head 
of the pomology dept., in the divi- 
sion of horticulture, to introduce a 
course in the utilization of culls and 
surplus crops. From its early begin- 
ning in the fall of 1913, equipped with 
only a few gas plates and the neces- 
sary kettles, offering three weeks of 
laboratory practice, horticulture man- 
ufactures grew by leaps and bounds, 
particularly due to its extensive work 
during World War I, to be established 
as a separate department in May, 
1!»ik, with Prof. Chenoweth as head 
of the department.

Frosh Hazing 


by Yours Truly 

To the Editor; 

What has happened to the spirit of 
Frosh hazing this year? What fun is 
I left in hazing without a soloist in the 
I "C" store, a marriage proposal in 
front of Stockbridge Hall or a cham- 
bermaid in the halls of Lewis and 

I doubt very much if it is the fault 
of the sophomore class. For years 
hazing week was something to be 
feared by the freshmen girls, the "C" 
store would be a hall of horror for 
any of the green frosh who entered 
during hazing week. Now it is noth- 
ing more than a social center for sor- 
ority rushing. In years past, sopho- 
mores were allowed to request favors 
of the frosh; making beds, cleaning 
rooms, bussing trays, etc. and at pres- 
ent the girls of '49 are getting away 
with reciting a few lines of poetry, 
meeting men with the familiar "Hi 
Joe", and discarding their warpaint. 

If they are to be subjected to so 
little hazing, why have a freshmen 
hazing week at all?

Obviously, this year is 10,561), 74o, 
201 times better than last year. Yes, 
of course-MEN. Thank heaven-no 
more manless columns I'm tired of 
'em too. So just try to get the feel of 
it, here's a column devoted to every 
female's number one thought. 

And I see where some rare speci- 
mans of the fair sex are making hay 
(even green hay) while the sun 
shines. From the reactions exhibited, 
I gather that the veterans aren't 
wholly sincere in their howling. One 
might think they had a glimpse of 
Frankstein's ghost. That's a thought, 
isn't it? 

Naturally men on campus means 
fraternity rushing. Thus far the only 
comment has been a somewhat bitter 
"why?". Just the same, dear ole S.A.

We'd like to start this year out in 
the right way by saying "hello" and 
"glad to see you" to the veterans 
who are back on campus. It's swell 
not to have to write about you in ab-

original purpose of keeping students 
posted of the activities of former 
classmates still in the service and 
helping the latter to keep in contact 
with each other as much as possible. 
Any information about our service-

be greatly appreciated.

At the local bonfire last Thursday 
evening Coach Tommy Eck revealed 
in part the possible outcome of this 
year's football season. With a hint 
of pessimism in his voice Coach Eck 
exhorted the student body to bear with 
the boys regardless of possible ini- 
tial defeats. 

This note of warning, not to expect 
too much of MSC's first postwar 
team, lies in the fact that the squad 
is highly unseasoned as far as col- 
legiate football is concerned. The 
team is heavily sprinkled with fresh- 
men students, some of whom are 
without benefit of schoolboy football 
experience. In addition, though the 
turnouts for practice have been great 
er than expected; they are, neverthe- 
less, much below pre-war par. Regard 
less, of this, we can expect both Am- 
herst College and the University of 
Maine to be in practically the sanu 
position, for both teams had also sus- 
pended collegiate football activities 
during the war. As a result, the onlv 
experienced team we should face, will 
be Brooklyn College. This school 
played a regular peace time football 
schedule last year and will doubtles- 
have some experienced men returning 
However, it is difficult at such an 
early date to tell how things will 
stack up when October 20th rolls a 
round. The squad still has almost 
three weeks of heavy scrimmaging 
before the opening tilt and a lot car 
happen between now and the twen- 
Coatfnued on Pag* I 

Expressing the hope that "before 
too long, the Quarterly may become 
an independent publication", President 
Baker, In ■ letter, expressed his ap- 
preciation of the contribution the edi- 
tors are making "through the ({uar- 
terly, to a finer cultural atmosphere 
on the campus." At present the Quar- 
terly is a supplement to the Collegian. 
The full text of the letter follows: 
"A night or two ago I took home 
the Spring-Summer Number of the 
Massachusetts State College Collegian 
Quarterly. I spent a very interesting 
three-quarters of an hour reading 
some of the articles and the poems. 
Congratulations to you and those 
associated with you in editing the 
Quarterly and to those who con- 
tributed articles and poems. 

"With the editors of the Quarterly, 
I hope that before too long the Quar- 
terly may become an independent col- 
lege publication. It deserves support 
sufficient to make it more than a 
self-supporting activity. 

"Again may I express appreciation 
of the contribution which you and 
others are making through the Quar- 
terly to a finer cultural atmosphere 
on the campus. 

Hugh P. Baker" 
At present there are four editors: 
Barbara Cross '46, Hilda Sheinberg 
'47, Dorothea Lohmann, '46, and 
Arnold Golub, '47. A larger staff is 
planned and a competition for edi- 
torial positions is announced else- 
where in this issue. # 

The Collegian Quarterly is entering 
its ninth year of continuous publica- 
tion. After the well received issues 
of last year, the present editorial 
staff is looking forward to even fur- 
ther progress and achievement. 

The Quarterly is the undergraduate 
publication of the student body, and 
as such prints all forms of contribu- 
tions such as fiction, verse, essay, 
and other types of non-fiction mater- 
ial. Students are earnestly urged to 
submit to the editorial board possible 
material for publication. 

The new department was housed in 
the dairy building until 1980 when 
the appropriation for a separate 
building was finally approved. The 

i ediCStion to I'rof. Chenoweth is a 

standing tribute to his unrelenting ef- 
forts to make the department a suc- 
cess so much a success that its de- 
partment of research now ranks high- 
est in the country. His successors are 
continuing his p r og r es s ive program; 
one forward step taken since bis re- 
tirement In lt»41 is the changing of 
the departmental name from horti- 
culture manufactures to food tech- 

Prof. Chenoweth is the author of 
several books which are now being 
used as texts in food technology cour- 
ses; "Food Preservation", "How to 
Make Candy", and "How to Preserve 
Food". In 1949 on the 150th anniver- 
sary of the Massachusetts Society for 
Promoting Agriculture, he was a- 
warded S medal for hi* pioneer con- 
tribution in food preservation in 

Prof, Chenoweth was born in James- 
port, Mo., May W). 1X71. He received 
his P.S. degree from Valparaiso U- 
niversity in 1902, and his A.1J. de- 
gree in 1908. He received an honor- 
ary M.I), degree In Agriculture from 
the University of Missouri. He was 
head of the department of science at 
Chillkothe (Mo.) Normal School from 
1903 to 1007, and was secretary of 
the Missouri State Board of Horti- 
culture in 1918. He was instructor 
and assistant professor in pomology 
at MSC from 1912 to 101K, and was 

head of the department of horticul- 
ture manufactures from 101K to May, 
1941, when he retired. He was a mem- 
ber of Alpha Zeta, Sigma Xi, and 
Phi Kappa Phi. 

Sigma Iota Is Pledge Chapter Of 
Sigma Delta Tau, National Sorority 

Sigma Iota sorority last spring be- 
came the I 'si pledge chapter of Sigma 
Dtdta Tau, national sorority. The "Sig 
Delt" pledges expect initiation very 

Sigma lots sorority was founded as 
a local organization here in 1935 
through the efforts of five girls, aided 
by the members of the faculty. The 
sorority urew and d< veloped, and in 
r.tti a committee was set up to In- 
vestigate the problem of becoming 
affiliated with a national organiza- 
tion. Representatives of various na- 
tionals Were guests at the sorority 
house and all available information 
was obtained. When on February 17, 
1946, Mrs. Pen Rartman, national 
president of Sigma Delta Tau made 
S visit to Sigma Iota, % period of N 
search commenced, with the assist- 
ance of the Student Life Committee, 

which resulted in the pledging of 
Sigma lots to the national sorority. 

Sigma Delta Tau was founded on 
March 26, 1917 at Cornell University. 

Peta Chapter was next founded at the 

University of Pennsylvania, succeeded 
by twenty other chapters on college 
and university campuses throughout 
the country. There are nineteen SC 
live chapters in the United State.-, and 

one in Canada. Willi the pledging of 
Sigma Iota on May 'J«'.. 1946, Sigma 
Delia Tau has extended its program 
of expansion to include the .New Fug- 
land States. 

Psi pledge chapter hopes to be in- 
stalled as an active chapter in the not 
too distant future. Miss Xita Thorner, 
a former president of the Alpha chap- 
ter, will advise and assist the sorority 
during the pledge period.

Texas. Before leaving Italy he was 
awarded the D.F.C. for taking a crip- 
pled Liberator on a successful bomb 
run over Germany. Although the plane 
was plastered with anti-aircraft fire, 
Lt. Herrmann kept it aloft, dropped 
his bombs and took the almost unair- 
worthy plane safely back to its home 
base. Bernie Willemain '44 and Rose

after Bernie's return from Germany. 
They are living in Tennesee where he

Some of the fellows and girls are 
still overseas despite the war's end,

Ray Hollis, Bob Cowing '44, and Dan-

Lt. Warren Anderson '45 is in Guam 
and Lt. Bob Radway '44 is in the 
Philippines. Pat Jennings '45 has ar- 
rived in England where she is serving

we can have more veterans back home

This fact was emphasised last Sat- 
urday when the si pi ad had its first 
real contact work. From eleven to 
twelve under the hot sun, Coaches 
Eck and Ball put their charges 
through a heavy scrimmage period. 
Working in the backfield for the first 
team were Lee, Befu, Struzzier, and 
Culbertson; at the ends were Men- 
gher and O'Connell; at tackles Shum- 
way and Sullivan; at guards Wolfe 
and Desautels; and at center Hall. 
Although this was the starting outfit, 
it was however subject to change 
throughout the scrimmage as Coach 
Eck attempted to give all the boys a 
chance to show all their merits. The 
scrimmage, the first of its type this 
season, looked rather well as the boys, 
working from a single wing formation 
with an unbalanced line, swept off 
tackle and barged through the middle 
of the line. Though the practice was 
far removed from opening game per- 
fection, it did reveal that the men 
possessed a lot of fight and were will- 
ing to learn. If this sort of spirit con- 
tinues throughout the season, the MSC 
football team will be a hard one to 

not muscles) What say? Was the 
water too cold? The freshmen have 
some pretty rugged individuals in 
their midst. They liked the water so 

much they even induced a few of the 
Honorables to join them-with a little 
gentle prodding 

Anyhow, it's a nice experience just 

to hear a rumble along with treble in 
the c-store and convo, off key or not.

lows so here's to a happy year.

Pledging Closes Rushing October 8 
For 8 Fraternities, 6 Sororities 


The fraternity rushing season at 
MSC was opened <>u Tuesday, Sep- 
tember 25, by Dean Lanphear with a 

talk on the values ami operation of 
the fraternity system here. Timed to 

correspond with the sorority raihing, 

the fraternity rush period will end on 
Oetober 8. Of the eleven fraternities 
here, only tight: Alpha Kpsilon Pi, 

Alpha Gamma Rho, Kappa Bigma, 
Lambda Chi Alpha, Q.T.V. local, Sig- 
ma Alpha Kpsilon, Tau Epsilon Phi, 
and Theta Chi are partidpating In 

niahing this year. 

Continuing until Oetober 8, individ- 
ual houses will entertain and get to 

know the prospective pledges. By 

noon on Monday, October 8, every 
eligible four year man is asked to 
indicate whether he intends to pledge 
or not, check and sign a slip, seal it in 
an envelope, and leave it in Mr. Lan- 
phear'a office by noon. The pledge 
■lips may be obtained from the indi- 
vidual houses or in Registrar Lan- 
phear's office during the week of 
October 1-8. 

All houses except Alpha Episilon Pi 
and Tau Epsilon Phi are limited by a 
quota rule to eight pledges, but since 
interest in faternities and the number 
of men returning to college are both 
greater tban was anticipated three 
week! ago. there is now a proposal 
before the Interfraternity Council for 
an increase in the quota. 

fa man who wishes to join a 
fraternity will write on his pledge slip 
his first choice of a house and as main- 
other choices as he wished to indicate 
in the order of his preference. (Most 
me" indicate either two or t hree 
Choices.) The individual fraternities 
submit lists of the eligible men whom 
they wish to pledge. At a meeting 
of the Interfraternity Council in the 
afternoon of October 8. the pledge 
slips and fraternity lists are com- 
pared. As far as possible, every 
eligible man is given his first choice. 
but if the house of his choice is 

ted by the quota from accepting 
him and one of the other houses which 
he has indicated can take him. ho is 
-tied to one of these for which 
- indicated a preference. No one 
but the eligible man himself ever 
k- owi whether he was pledged to the 
house of his first choice or to a house 
further down on his list In the past, 
the council has been compelled in very 
few cases to sanction a second choice, 
very rarely a third choice. 

Pviishine and other interfraternity 
activities are currently conducted un- 
der the supervision of the Interfrater- 
nity Council, an official body made up 
of the faculty advisers of the local 
chapters. As soon as the undergradu- 
ate membership has returned to full 
strength, the council will revert to its 
normal makeup of undergraduates. 


Panhellenie has issued the follow- 
ing announcement about Rushing. In- 
vitations to the Imitation 7Y</.s will

Interest In Research 
Is Promoted On Campus 

Members of the Research Staff of 
the Experiment Station nave made 
significant contributions to the Agri- 
cultural work of the State, Public 
Health, Technology. Veterinary Sci- 
ence, etc. In order to acquaint all 
those interested in research with their 
work, the Experiment Station has 
planned a program of lectures, dem-

search, and to acquaint those interest-

and achievements of the year. All 
meetings are open to members of

markedly improved and the formation 
of this new Allied Commision should 
help matters even more. 

In a few short weeks the Japs have 
had a great change of character. Once 
again Japan is the home of the cherry 
tree, clean homes, and polite inhabi- 
tants. Psychologists have long doubt-

characters. They should look to the

looking at the record, we just cannot

So it looks like a long occupation.

Campaign For Concert 
Series To Begin Soon 

The Massachusetts State College 
Concert Series campaign will start on 
Oct. 28 and continue through Nov. I. 
Every student on campus will be ap- 
proached by a representative from 
his class. Tickets may also be pur- 
chased from the music department in 
Memorial Hall. The price of the sub- 
scription is $4.00, including tax. 

Among the featured artists will be 
Leorta Flood, violinist who was great- 
ly enjoyed when she appeared on 
campus two years ago. With her will 
appear the Yasinoffs, duo-pianist 
sisters who performed at an early 
age in Europe; Susanne Sten, a mez- 
zo-soprano, who made her appearance 
in opera houses and concert halls in 
Europe; the American Troubadors, 
an ensemble of five, under the direc- 
tion of the well-known baritone, actor, 
and composer, John DeMerchant. 
They will present America in song 
and story from "Pilgrim*! Landing to 
Tin Pan Alley"; and Witold Mal- 
cuzynski, pianist. He came to Amer- 
ica in 1942 and made his debut at 
Carnegie Hall. 

The board of directors of the con- 
cert series are Dr. Goding, Dr. Frak- 
er, Mr. Alviani, Mr. Nestle from Am- 
herst, and Marcia Van Meter '48. 
Faith Jillson '4f», is the President. 

New Point System 
Committee At Work 

A committee of four students was 
appointed last Friday to take over the 
duties of the point system committee 
on campus. 

Last year's committee consisting 
of Lester Giles, chairman, Ann Merril, 
Janet Mallon and Walter Gouering 
turned their positions over to Arnold 
Golub, Jerry Swanson, Jeanette Cy- 
narski and Connie Stevens. This 
committee will elect a chairman from 
among themselves. 

This new group intends to check up 
on the points of active students and 
to get after the students who do not 
have seventy averages. They also 
stand open to the appeals of any 
campus organization who thinks the 
number of points given to its mem- 
bers is either too high or too low. 

SDT Leads Greeks 

Surprising differences mark the 
scholastic averages of second semester 
last year, in that the sororities led 
the non-sorority girls by nearly five 
points. Sigma Delta Tau was ahead of 
the other Sororities with an average 
of 81.25. Another interesting differ- 
ence lies in the fact that the girls 
of '47 had a higher average than 
the boys while in the other clsi 
the boys led, as is usual. 

The average for the whole college 
was 76.72; all-girl average was 7t>.75 
and all-sorority average was 79.22, 
while the non-sorority average was

At Pl the present time, the Quarter* is campaigning to impress 
upon the undergraduate student body the fact that the Quarterly 
is not written by and for poets and philosophers among us; that 
it has always welcomed, and welcomes now, well-written papers 
in all fields of study represented on the campus-history, econom- 
ics floriculture, psychology, and all the natural sciences from 
which papers of general interest are continually emerging 

The Quarterly feels that it has never before had such wide- 
spread student' interest and support, and that this interest is 
still growing. A petition is. therefore, being submitted to the Aca- 
demic Activities Board to request independent status for the Quar- 
terly so that it may function under its own power, and with in- 
creasing momentum. We fully endorse the hope that the mount- 
in. interest of the students in the Quarterly will express itself 
in number of contributions and in active participation in the cam- 
paign to establish an indepen dent Qua rterly. — E.S.

What do you do with your money? Probably just what almost 
every other* average American college student does. You buy 
yourself a second breakfast to kill time between classes. You buy 
a pack of cigarettes, and some gum, and perhaps even a bar ot 
candy Maybe in the afternoon you have ice cream or something 
to drink, once again to kill time or just to be sociable. If life seems

attend. Still many who knew of the 
event did not attend snyway. Here's 
hoping the freshmen continue that 
fighting spirit when they get on the

After Brooklyn College's one-sided 
victory over C.C.N.Y. one cannot ex- 
pect us to look forward, very hope- 
fully, to our forthcoming tilt with the 
men from the Dodgertown. Scanning 
through the writeup of the game in 
the N.Y. Times I discovered that the 
Brooklynites possessed a powerful 
"T" offensive with an explosive full- 
back who skirted the ends with the 
same ease he used in ploughing 
through the middle of the line. Well, 
such is life. 

The picture I have painted so far 
makes Saturday, Oct. 20th look like 
a bleak day. However, such may not 
be the case. Although it is well known 
that we have a green squad, practi- 


by Don Smith and Jerry Shea 


The class of '4f> has had many rep- 
resentatives among the visitors on 
campus this past week. Lieut. "Don" 
Storey, of the Army Air Corps, spent 
the weekend in Amherst. Phil Deane 
and Bob Gore, also '46 spent part of 
their leave in Amherst. Phil has just 
returned from the European theater, 
where he was in action with the 
Mountain Troops. George Rosenfield 
'46 and also of the Mountain Troops 
was back on campus this week. 

There is still news of casualties 
among the State men. Some of these 
may now be out dated due to the sum- 
mer vacation. Private Roger Welling- 
ton '46 was killed in action in Ger- 
many some time ago. He had been 
overseas only a short time. Lt. An- 

cally void of collegiate football exper- 1 thony Marulli '4o, has been reported 

ienee, cannot avoid the fact, that j killed in action. Previously he had

taled 84 has been increased to "><). 
This number is indeed surprising in 
times like these, and is far more than 
ever was expected. Though I realize 
that numbers in themselves do not 
make a football team, I am, however, 
highly confident that both Tommy

The London Conference 

The United Nations Council of 
Foreign Ministers, which had been 
meeting in London, has ended in a 
stalemate. The ministers of the Bin 
Five have gone home with many of 
the main issues hanging in the air. 

The irony of the situation is that 
there was no basic misunderstanding 
as to general policy. The nations are 
all attempting to follow the Charter 
of the United Nations and the terms 
of the Potsdam Declaration. The 
point of disagreement was whether 
France and China should be included 
in the meetings for basic peace treaty 
drafting. It was originally planned 
that they should participate in the 
peace talks, but the Russians sudden- 
ly reversed their early position and . 
demanded that only the Big Three 
consider the problems of drafting 
preliminary peace treaties. Secretary 
of State Byrnes and Foreign Minister 
Bevin disagreed with the Russians 
and the stalemate resulted. 

Thus the first real peace confer- 
ence has ended in temporary chaos. 
The well laid foundations are to 
firm for this misunderstanding to 
cause any serious impediment to 
world peace; hut the symptoms an 
present and dangerous consequence- 
could result if the situation were not 
cleared up immediately. 

Russian foreign policy has beei 
lather difficult to understand at 
times. The Russian supported govern 
ments in the Balkans have long been 
■ lore spot in the fr'' n M v relation 
Unong the Allies. The Balkan govern- 
ments are reported to he unrepn 
tentative of the various political 
groups. The Balkan peace treaties 
played an important part in the 
Foreign Ministers' discussion at Lon- 
don. It is reported that the minister 
of the United States, Great Britain, 
France and China invariably opposed 
General Molotov during the discus- 
sions of the Balkan peace treaties. 
This may be why Russia finally de- 
manded that France and China be ex- 
cluded from the discussions. 

It is very easy to hurl accusations 
at the Soviet Union No doubt many 
of them are justified; but we must 
always keep our wits about us and 
not lose our sense of proportion. We 
must remember that Russia is follow- 
ing a very realistic foreign policy. 
She is justified in doing this, for th. 
country came very close to complete 
defeat. The Germans were at the 
gates of Moscow and were in sight 
of the Caspian Sea. The Russians an 
determined that foreign invasion of 
their country should never happen 
again. To bring this about they may 
possibly be concentrating too much on 
immediate objectives, rather than on 
long range goals. 

A word of warning should be given 
to the politicians of the world. A 
ghost army of ten million dead an 
watching your feeble efforts. They 
fought together in war-and won. No 
differences of nationality or philoso- 
phies of government disrupted their 
common effort.

This year, for the first time, a 
^language house" supplements lan- 
guage study at MSC, thirteen girls 
lioneering in the venture. They are 
living at "La Mai?on Francaise" 01 
North Pleasant Street, formerly the 
Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity house, 
which has become MSC's French- 
language house. 

Dr. Katherine A. Clarke, who was 
appointed assistant professor of 
Trench at MSC this fall and is serv- 
ing as housemother for the group, is 
enthusiastic about the project. She 
feels that in addition to perfecting 
Conversational French, it affords an 
excellent means of gaining a more in- 
timate knowledge of French life an:! 


Miss Clarke is well qualified to e : 
press her opinion. A graduate of Gou- 
ther college, she took a master's de 

free at Middlebury and then went 
to France where she received her doc- 
torate from the Universite de Gre 
noble. While at Middleb ny she ma ■ 
her acquaintance with thi Fn 
language house there. Midd'.ebur 
fras a pioneer in this field, est; il 
jng a house in 1916. Since that tim 
Jnanv other colleges, such as M 
Holyoke and Smith, have followed 
luit, including Spanish and German- 
language houses as well. 

The girls who live at the houw 

are not all majoring in French. Some 
are specializing in home economic 
or other subjects, but all wish to

Louis Untermeyer, Poet 
Is Social Union Artist 

Louis Untermeyer, editor of "A 

Treasury of Great Poems", poet, crit- 
ic, and lecturer, comes to MSC on 
October 26, 1945 at 8 p.m. under the 
auspices of the Social Union. His sub- 
ject will be "How to Read Poetry and 

Like It." 

With some forty volumes of his 
own- original verse, translations, es- 
says, travel sketches, and criticism to 
his credit, Mr. Untermeyer's current 
book is the notable, "A Treasury of 
Great Poems", which presents in one 
volume the lives and times as well as 
the best-loved works of the great 
English and American poets. 

"Challenge," "Food and Drinh/j 
and "Selected Poems and Parodies" 
are among the best known of Mr. Un- 
termever's other books of verse. As 
a translator, his "Poems of Heinrich 
Heine", together with a definitive 
biography of the German poet, are 
great favorites. Among his prose 
works. "The Donkey of God" won the 
Knit Prize. "The Book of Living 
Verse", printed simultaneously in Lon- 

for all men don, Paris, Hamburg and Milan, was

His anthologies are widely

Louis Untermeyer was horn in New 
York, reared and, he likes to say now. 
"miseducated" there. A failure in 
high school geometry kept him out of 
college and, though he yearned for a 
career as a pianist, he went into busi- 
ness instead. 

In a jewelry manufacturing plant 
in New Jersey, he became successively 
an office boy, a salesman, and finally 
manager. At thirty-seven, after a few- 
years abroad, he finally left the busi- 
ness to devote his entire time to writ-

A Study Of Colonial Policy 

The follov in ■■■ ' '• although a '

policy (editor of "Nen From Bt '- 
gium") eeamt to " fair and ae 
curate analysia of colonization in gen

days of earlieei Portugese explora 
tion, ie earning in for eharp eriticUm. 

Pascal fait that all our troubles do 
rive from the fact tha W« cannot BUj 
quietly In one room. Except for those 
reeluaea of the Middle agea who ■ 
bandoned the world altogether and 
entombed themselves in small Cellfi 
around the apse of some cathedral, BO 
body ever achieved the ideal of the 
great French moralist, l'.esides, even 
those few men and women depended 
entirely on the outside world. If ev- 
erybody had taken to that extreme 
solution in the quest for spiritual re 
pose, nobody would have survived. 

It is therefore clear that according j 
lo human nature, we must leave our ■ 
room We are social being!, we are 

mixers, to a lesser or ■ greater de- 
gree, in tinus of 1 tental fatigue we 
may wish that so e cataclysm would 
"wash this whole w >rld away." but 
moat of the time We fee! that we .'an 
not do very well withO'J the poor joke 
on the weather the elevator man dishes 
out every three day., with out the 
cab driver's insolence and even with 
out the repeated and detailed report i 
the old waitress give* us at noon abo l1 
her persistent arthritis, d ! lo the 
rains and to the Democrat! in th • 
White House. 

We depend on all that as much as 
we depend <>n the daily wil of some 
columnist, Oil the gesture vi h which 
the girl in the flower simp arranges 
th orchids i-i the show window and 
,, •; the Ironical questioning singsong 
of the newsboy rho repeats s/i h ecep- 
ti al condescension. "What paper d'you 


Send us to a village, exile us to a 
mountain resort, and we will depend 
on the sullen conversation of the game 

warden, on the laconic "Yens" and 

"Nop s" of the general storekeeper 
and e en on the roly-poly bears who 
examine the contents of the garbage 
cans at night. 

Thousands of chains bind us to 
thousands of people. Thousands of 
people are bound to us. "You are a 
pig," said one gentleman to another. 
"You (latter me." was the reply. "I'" 1 
, Mrely n man". Being men WC must 
behave as men, we must go out in the 
world, rub shoulders, hurt people and 
be hurt. There is no other way. 

Those scholarly individuals who 
have tried to explain the colonial pol- 
icy of modern or ancient countries 
have generally looked for economic, 
political and even for religious rea- 
sons. They usually avoided the sim- 
plest explanation: to wit, that every 
real man wants to know what lies be- 
hind the hill, what lies beyond the 
sea. Colonization is therefore as nat- 
ural a procedure to man as any other 
social contact. He who has the best 
means of transportation, the most 
powerful weapons to defend himself, 
goes out farthest and soon subjugates 
the people whom he has beforehand 
tried to justify his actions though 
rendered defenseless. 

The colonizer through the ages has 
economic, social and religious reasons. 
Very seldom did he avow political 
reasons. Usually he intended to con-

the Indians remarked that It was very

that the Christian story was all right

to a leligi. .-, to a social order, ordi- 
narily take on ai lount of persuasion

The task of colonization seems 

therefore b of the most delicate 
propositions on earth. Very often 
though, it If! hand ed by people who 
are poorly « quipped, either intellect- 
ually or morally. It is to the great 
advantage of the Congo natives that 
the job of bringing civilization to 14 
million primitive people is being done 

by a number of men carefully chosen 
and selected f>>r this job and who have 
the right spirit about it. 

It is no secret In fact, every school- 
book in the U. S. \. has the story 
that for a short time in the Congo 
civilizing work was bungled and ex- 
cesses peculiar to the system of cap- 
italistic exploitation occurred. They 
\ vie committed by a medley of peo- 
ple of all nationalities and their im- 
portance was grossly exaggerated at 
the time in an atmosphere of interna- 
tional competition. The silver lining 
o c this minor cloud, however, has been 

thai the administration of the Congo, 
t; ken over by the Belgian State in 
] o ,, has been more careful than that 
of any other colonizers in the SCCOm 
p Ishment of its difficult task. Ac- 
ci rding to what unbiased observers 
h ive said and written, they have done 
r« larkably well. 

It is the concensus now thai Colo 
n:;- ion's chief and ultimate aim is 
to lift the colonized people to the 
le.el of the civili/.cr. That does not 
mean that the "savage" should learn 
to appreciate sssalss BisrisJeres, Ber 
Bard Shaw and the limp watches of 
Salvador Dali. It means essentially 
that the colonized people should ac- 
cept about the same social symbols 
as the colonizer does, tin- same spirit- 
ual and moral values we revere, so 
as to enable the former savage to take 
pari on equal terms in that great con- 
versation a couple of billion people 
tarry on all ever this globe and which 
deals above all with an explanation 
for our occasional greatness and a 
consolation for our permanent insig- 

After only four or five decades of 
organized civilizing activity the Bel- 
gians may point to a fact insignif- 
icant perhaps in the literary world, 
but remarkable if one looks at it in 
the light of circumstances: since 1946 
a group of Congo natives has pub- 
lished a bi-monthly review in French 
called La Veil du Congolais. Its edi- 
torial slogan reads: "Pour les Con- 
golais, par les Congolais." The editor- 
in-chief is A. R. Bolamba, It would 
of course have been preferable to see 
a Congolese review in the native 
tongue, but the great diversity of 
languages makes that scarcely pos- 

sible. Preach Is the lingua franca I 

of the advanced Negroes. 

The review makes very Interesting 
reading, not on account of its literary 
qualities one cannot really admire 
the l'r< OCh alexandrines which adorn 
it. They are purely academical and 
abound in cliches of the worst kind. 
Howevi ., the> prove that already the 
second generation of primitive people 
have 1 "red with comparative ease 
a most co' tplieated though annoying 
manner of expression. A scholastic 
tour de force, and that's all there is 

to it. 

The most interesting part of the 
review consists in the numerous ar- 
ticles in which the Congolese freely 
discuss their status and their future. 
They express their gratitude to the 
white man and siate the problem as 
follows: "The Negroes for the time 
being can achieve nothing by them- 
selves. Tie Europeans teach them 
different trades in order to prepare 
new ways. The Negroes should listen 
to the advice given by their civilizers. 
They are making encouraging pro- 

The most urgent question for the 
"evolues," the already civilized Con- 
golese, is to know where they will 
stand in the society of the future. 
They feel tha' they already differ 
from the jungle people, that they are 
in a Class by the: selves. One of them, 
Abbe Loya, w Ites: "To be purely and 
simply assimi'ated and become like 
Kuropeans,— '.hat we could not do and 
1 not desirable." They v. an' to be 
themselves, M any other people does. 
They insist on Monogamy, on the 
anility of the family; they stn ss the 
importance of Social discipline. They 
want to be civilized in the best sense 
and one write. Justly remarks: "Civi- 
'i '.ed does no I !M white, because 
.here are white p ople who are not 
■ivilized." Th. ■ constantly insist on 
ioral civilisi Ion far more than on 
.laterial pro)' < SS. 

The Belgian n g lations have spe- 
cial provisions f ■ :• the evolues. whose 
Status, howevc is still not clearly 
defined. La Voi\ du Congolais discus- 
■•. at length fiis Interesting question. 
Some say an e vol lie is a Negro who 
has a diploma: others contend that an 
veins is recognised by the fact that 
e makes a certain amount of money 
month. These two points are debated 
cry intelligently, and both criteria 
re rejected when used separately. 
Already the Congolese have found out 
that a sheepskin is no proof of real 
•iltuie. and they are quite definite I 
in their doubts about the relation be- 
tween the culture and the bankroll 
of an individual. 

Another interesting feature in their 
review is the reasonable and sensible 
criticism they offer with regard to 
certain conditions made to their fellow 
countrymen. They complain bitterly

•.bout certain traveling conditions on 
I tland ea crs. This is all the more 
interesting in view of the fact that 
the company to which these ships be- 
long aid which is responsible for the 
rather awkward situation is one of 
the principal advertisers in the review. 
Freedom <>f the press, for white as 
well as for colored people in the Con- 
jo, is evidently not a vain word. 

The general tone of the magazine 
is very much like a white man's paper. 
The most striking thing about it is, 
however, that these second-generation 
primitives discuss with ease, calm and 
great dignity the very problems which 
in western countries would undoubt- 
ed! v give rise to bloody conflicts. 

To have rendered possible such an 
atmosphere and such a pax belgica 
must be a reason for the colonizers 
to be very proud indeed; to the Con- 
golese themselves it is undoubtedly 
a great credit and contains the prom- 
ise of a brilliant future.

South America. Malcuzynski made his 
second New York appearance this year 
as soloist with the New York Phil- 
harmonic-Symphony Orchestra. Dur- 
ing the forthcoming season he is en- 
gaged as soloist with practically every 
major symphony orchestra on the con- 

Malcuzynski, who is proving one of 
the sensational finds among the pian- 
ists of the last quarter of a century, 
comes of a family of business and 
financial rather than artistic tradi- 
tions. Young Malcuzynski himself 
studied and majored in law and phi- 
losophy at two Polish Universities. 
Hut the love of music was deeply im- 
bedded in the young Pole, and even as 
a university student, he gave all of his 
spare time to the piano, the instru- 
ment for which he early showed an 
uncommon, flare. Finally he deter- 
mined to devote his entire time to 
music and entered as a student at the 
Warsaw Conservatorium where his 
great countryman, Frederic Chopin, 

Malcuzynski could probably claim 
closer kinship to the music of Freder- 
ic Chopin, than any of his colleagues 
before the public today. This is not on- 
ly because Malcuzynski is a fellow- 
countryman of the great Polish com- 
poser, but also because he studied 
Chopin's music under Paderewski at 
the time when the latter was prepar- 
ing an edtion of Chopin's works. Thus 
Mr. Malcuzynski had the privilege of 
seeing it literally grow beneath his 
eyes, of being present while the mas- 
ter discussed the various points of 
interpretation which arose, while he 
debated the authenticity of the vari- 
ous readings. And it must be remem- 
bered that Paderewski was considered 
the greatest interpreter of Chopin 
since the death of the composer. Mal- 
cuzynski, alone of living pianists, has 
actually '.udicd the Paderewski edi- 
tion with his copious marginal notes 
ind etlitorial comment. 

"He is a fully equipped pianist and 
virtuoso", said Downes of the New 
York Times. "And also he is fortunate- 
ly an honest musician. All the resourc- 
es of the nineteenth century piano and 
the superb piano effects written for 
it are at his command; not only the 
romantic rhetoric but also the pedal 
effects and the singing tone which

Professor Barrett will show movies, 
and Mr. Loy will be the caller for 

likes to express its feelings in music. 
It was Arthur Rodzinski, conducting 
the New York Philharmonic-Sym- 
phony Orchestra, who introduced him, 
as soloist, in a new light as an inter- 
preter of Chopin. This was fitting 
since he was the winner of the last 
International Chopin Competition in 
Warsaw, in IW7. 

Malcuzynski's success can be ex- 
plained in various ways. It is, of 
course, quite true that Malcuzynski's 
pianistic brilliance is at its zenith; 
it is equally true that the public has 
been quick to recognize the great pow- 
er of his personality, which permeates 
his whole manner, and never fails to 
exercise a strong suggestive influence. 
But there is, of equal importance, his 
choice and selection of programmes. 

He recognizes the necessity of fol- 
lowing the laws sanctified by the 
greatest names in the pianistic world 
and of submitting to a taste in music 
that has remained unchanged. Luckily 
for him, the wishes of concert goers 
coincide with his own. What the pub- 
lic wishes to hear is, in the vast 
majority of cases, exactly what he 
wishes to play—the masterpieces of 
classical music. Luckily, too, the motto, 
"Noblesse oblige" still holds good as 
unconditionally in art as it used to do 
in all departments of life. It causes 
Malcuzynski to consider only the 
greatest masterpieces amongst com- 
positions for the piano. A great art- 
ist who wishes to exhibit his art 
through the medium of interpretation 
is forced to choose works which en- 
able him to present "greatness in a 
great manner". Therefore much of 
Malcuzynski's repertoire will be found 
to be from the golden age of musical 
literature: Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, 
Schumann, Liszt, and Chopin, Chopin, 
and again Chopin... and the moderns 
too. The will of the majority cannot 
be ignored with impunity. 

cider and doughnuts will be served 
Tentative plans for the Club's ac- 
tivities this year show a well-rounded 
program, which will include the novel 
idea of a country fair, square dances, 
and faculty speakers, including Dr. 
Ross and Prof. Rand.

tomic energy may stimulate our mor- 
al energy to solve the problem of end- 
ing war." 

l>r. Cary 
Dr. Harold Cary spoke on the prob- 
lem of atomic bomb control, and in 
opening his talk hastened to empha- 
size that he would interest himself 
with the problem as such, and not 
the question of how it is going to be 
controlled. He also said that he would 
assume that the atomic bomb is not 
a secret or will not be for long, since 
the scientists of other nations will be 
able to produce it, and since our gov- 
ernment has already indicated that 
the secret cannot be kept In refer- 
ence to the supposition that there ir 
no effective defence, he remarked that 
such a theory removes the idea that 
the U. S. can keep ahead in the mak- 
i •: and handling of the bomb. 

The solutions already proposed for 
the problem, which Dr. Cary men- 

tioned were these: (1) to keep the 
bomb and use it as an instrument o r 
peace; (2) to turn over the secret 
immediately to the Security Councl. 
Of the United Nations; (8) to turn 
it over only after the latter had bee 
sufficiently strengthened, and the veto 
power was taken from the Big 6 j an'! 
(4) the solution proposed by the 
scientists who are responsible for the 
atomic bomb, to establish an interna- 
tional technical panel which would 
oversee the production of atomic ener- 
gy, and scientific improvements usim 
same; investigate and catalogue all 
sources of the metals used in the 
bomb; periodically investigate all ' 
tabliahmentl associated directly or in- 
directly with the production of atomic 
energy; and receive and publish all 
information on technological improve 
mente and progress in the field of a 

He dismissed the first solution, no 
ting that if we were to keep the se 
cret, we would make ourselves » t« 
get of either jealousy or fear. As f > 
turning the secret over immediately, 
he contended that this was far too 
visionary an idea since the Securi. 
Council does not have enough esteem 
among various nations, and because 
as yet no agreements have been 
reached concerning the issues of dis- 
armament and peacetime military 

Dr. Cary then stated that al- 
though the last mentioned solution 
was not workable in all respects, it ir 
the most sensible. We should, he sug- 
gested, make an offer to all nations 
to agree upon a real, effective, inter- 
national control. And he pointed out 
that now nations have the feeling 
that we are entering a period where 
war will end civilization, therefore 
they are compelled to co-operate and 
to lift their vision. 

In concluding, Dr. Cary stressed, 
that the solution lies in a limitation 
of the use of atomic energy, through 
the self-denial of the countries capa- 
ble of producing it, supported by in 
spections in order to effect the elim- 
ination of the sovereign power of any 
one nation. 

In the discussion period that f<> 
lowed, Dr. Caldwell asked comment 
of Dr. Ross and Prof. Troy concern 
ing Dr. Gary's proposed solution. 
Speaking for himself and Prof. Troy, 
Dr. Ross professed that he enter 
tained some skepticism as to whether 
other nations such as Russia would 
open themselves to inspection. When 
asked for a counter-proposal, Prof. 
Troy stated that he thought Dr. Ca- 
ry's plan excellent, but that we 
should go easy on giving out the se- 
cret until the United Nations Con- 
ference had proved itself. Dr. Ross, 
on the other hand, urged that we pub- 
lish the information that we have, 
saying that otherwise we would star 1 , 
a scientific competition that would be 
catastrophic. When asked how long 
it would take Russia to catch up with 
us were we to keep the secret, Dr. 
Ross suggested that perhaps never, 
since a totalitarian nation bound th" 
minds of her scientists in a straight 
jacket of no free say. 

Dr. Ritchie, chairman of the fo- 
'•um, concluded the discussion by tell- 
ing of an Arkansas farmer who wrote 
to the government requesting an a 
tomic bomb to clear the stumps from 
his land. The reply was, that we don't 
put the bombs out in that size yet. 

It was announced that *he next 
forum will be on Nov. 8, and will b ■•

The MSC concert series will open 
on November 27th with Witold Mal- 
cuzynski as its first artist. Mr. Mal- 
cuzynski, born in Poland in 1914, was 
Ignace Paderewski's last pupil. The 
pianist made his debut in Paris, and 
was hailed as a great sensation. Since 
then, he has won wide acclaim in 
South America, the United States, 
and Canada, appearing as a soloist 
with leading symphony orchestras. 

Suzanne Sten, mezzo-soprano, will 
be the artist of the second concert, 
which will take place on December 
14th. The beautiful Miss Sten is of 
Viennese and Hungarian ancestry, 
and achieved operatic fame in Europe. 
She was affiliated with the Neues 
T)eutches Theater in Prague, and the 
Opera at Sarrbruecken She was also 
truest artist at many of the maio>- 
opera houses of Europe. In 1938, find- 
inn herself out of sympathy with Na'.i 
ideology which was growing in cen- 
tral Europe, Miss Sten came to Amer- 
ica. Here, she has been hailed as one 
nf the outstanding singers of mr 
time. Miss Sten made her operatic <\>- 
but here this season as the leading 
artist with the San Francisco and 
Chicago Opera Companies.

Scrolls Take Over 
Convo Next Week 

The freshman choir made its first 
formal appearance at convocation this 
morning, under the direction of Mrs. 
Esther Strong Clapp, and accompanied 
by Shirley Pustilnick '49. The first 
selection was a Welsh hymn, "Once 
to Every Man and Nation," by Mo- 
liant; then in a lighter vein, the round 
"Come, Follow, Follow," by Hilton. 
Other numbers included in the pro- 
gram were Atwood's "Teach Me, O 
Lord"; "How Lovely Are the Messen- 
gers" from Mendelessohn's St. Paul; 
and a fine rendition of "America the 
Beautiful", sung with a descant. 

The choir has provided music for 
the Sunday Vesper services, and will 
continue to do so for the rest of the 
semester. During the second semester, 
Mrs. Clapp hopes to organize the choir 
members as a freshman glee club. 

On November 1, the Scrolls will 
present the convocation program. 
They have planned a series of skits 
pertaining to the various phases of 
campus life based on their interpreta- 
tion of the spirits of fellowship, 
scholarship, and loyalty prevalent in 
our student body. One of their num- 
ber will act as a narrator, while the 
others take part in the acting. 

Fellowship will be characterized as 
a warm spirit of friendliness toward 
the entering freshman class. 

The necessity of one's achieving 
creditable scholarship from the begin- 
ning of the school year will be evi- 
dent after comparison with one who 
has devoted all his time to activities, 
until he is forced to abandon them all, 
and retire into his books to make a 
I passing grade.

ty, will be presented with a brief ac-

The Tools Of The Job 

It has long been one of the rights of anyone engaged in work of 
any kind that the tools of the job shall not betaken away from 
him. To a college student, the tools of the job include not only 
texts, paper, and writing material, but. in some cases, means of 
transportation. Such a situation is found, for example, on this 
campus, where a girl living in a dormitory, not readily available 
to the campus buildings where she has her classes, needs a bicycle 
in order to insure promptness in the performance of what is her 
job. Recently, a bicycle belonging to a girl on this campus was tak- 
en, perhaps by accident, but most likely, since it has not been re- 
turned, by intent. Intent to what? Intent to derive the student of 
the means of performing her tasks efficiently, or intent merely 
to possess a bicycle? We rather think the latter, indeed we hope 
so. And yet, the girl has been deprived of necessary transportation. 
More important than the return of the bicycle is the principle 
stated above. Important as the four freedoms or the provisions of 
the Bill of Rights is the right of every person to use the tools for 
his job. We are surprised to see so fundamental a consideration 
neglected on a college campus. 

Student Government 

Last spring a good deal of agitation was noticeable in the 
thoughts and words of many students in reference to student gov- 
ernment. The most generally advocated plan of revision called for 
a sort of super government or committee to function in matters of 
CO-educationaJ interests, a group which would combine some of the 
functions of both W.S.G.A. and Senate without abolishing or weak- 
ening either one. 

Without discussing the advisability or practicality of this idea. 
suffice it to say that many responsible students were in favor of it 
or of some closely allied revision. Perhaps the most important fact 
is that neither the President of the W'.S.G.A. nor of the Senate ob- 
jected to 8 change. Certain faculty members, also, were in favor 

of the plan. 

So far this year, as far as the students know, there has been no 
action taken, or even formulated, for the revision of student gov- 
ernment. If there are those on campus who are at present work- 
ing for what they believe is better student government, making 
plana or putting their ideas into practice, or even sorting out ideas.

The recent French elections were 
a victory for both Gen. deGaulle and 
the leftist political parties. Almost 
complete returns show that the peo- 
ple have overwhelmingly approved the 
General's plan of founding a Fourth 
Republic, with a revised constitution to 
be chosen by the newly elected Con- 
stitutional assembly. 

The people also decided that the 
present provisional French govern- 
ment should remain in power until the 

Once upon a time, before the l'ond 
was on the campus, a band of apes 
lived on the Island at the request of 
their brother, Chuck Darwin, who 
needed a job in order to pay his excess 
profits tax and saw the chance to 
c reat e one in the local cow university, 
there being no An Hui 91 being given 
at that point. Now this island was on 
the College l'ond, which leaves only 
one question to be answered: Where 
was the embryonic l'ond before it ar- 
rived between the roads (And where 
does it go from here?) 

Because the Brooklyn boys were 
bigger than they, ('apt. Anthropoid re-

his tribe, while Tarzan tried to stand 
upright. Scrimmages grew rougher, 
characters fell by the wayside, but ' 
Chuck paid no attention — he was tak- 
ing careful note of their evolution; re- 
volution didn't interest him. 

Many years passed; the tribe chang- 
ed and evolved. Somewhere along the 
way they had acquired a large Round 
Table. It had become a custom that 
once a year the leaders — those with 
the brawniest shoulders — were allowed 
to go out in search of the cocoanut 
which someone in a burst of 19th cen- 
tury romanticism when his educated 
feet went to his head, had kicked out 
of bounds. 

Now Galahad was a cagy character, 
but how low can a character get? 
Well, we'll tell you. Gal, wanting to 
unseat Art as captain of the Table, 
conceived a brilliant idea one day 
while searching for the cocoanut — and 
brought back a rather oddly shaped 
bloated pigskin which he presented as 
the long-lost nut. The others, figur- 
ing that ontogeny recapitulates philo- 
geny, accepted the pigskin as the real 
thing, and Galahad became Captain.

in various camnus activities. The 
society directed those student activi- 
ties which were hacked by no specific 
•••roup, hut which were essential to a 
well rounded campus life, such as 
football rallies, dances, etc. The Sen- 
ate, which has been forced to absorb 
the duties of Adelphia is analogous to 
W.S.G.A. and was primarily a j;ov- 
eming body for the men students. 
We have on campus at present one

cular students from liberated France 
has recently been opened at Combloux 
in the Haute Savoie region of France, 
according to reports received by the 
World Student Service Fund, student 
relief agency with offices at 8 West 
40th Street, New York 18, N. Y. Al- 
ready 50 students, mostly from Paris, 
are spending from one to three 
months in the quiet, invigorating 
mountain atmosphere. 

During the German occupation, u- 
niversity life in France was rendered 
nearly impossible. Curriculum and 
professors were strictly regulated. 
The Vichy government called up a 
large proportion of the student pop- 
ulation for deportation to Germany. 
Many escaped and joined the French 
Forces of the Interior (FFI). Others 
did forced labor in German work 
camps or received prison sentences 
As a result of such hardships and 
the severe food shortage, most stu- 
dents today are rundown in health 
and suffer from nervous disorders, 
undernourishment and weakened re- 
sistance to infection. 

The Combloux Chalet is able to 
provide proper medical treatment for 
students before they return to their 
studios. Typical among the ones ah 
ready back in school after a stay at 
Combloux is a nineteen-year-old med- 
ical student, who, while Caen was a 
center of fighting, shouldered the 
whole burden of nursing 180 patients 
at the Caen hospital. After six weeks 
of unceasing labor, he contracted a 
primary tuberculosis infection that 
would have kept him from finishing 

his studies. 

1 ife at Combloux is run directl> 
by the students. A former student 
who served with distinction in the 
resistance forces is in charge of the 
Chalet, and a medical attendant is 
responsible for the guests' health. A 
ri, id, self-imposed schedule has been 
, • U p for the students starting at 
9 o'clock in the morning and ending 
at 10 at night with a two-hour rest 
period in the afternoon. All questions 
of communal interest are settled by 

a student committee of five members. 

Student cooperation is also evident 
in the self-help association farmed 
by members of the house to assist the 
less fortunate ones either by f 
contributions or by aiding them in 
finding resources. Also foraging ex- 
peditions have been organized to sup- 
ply certain scarce foods like milk 
and eggs for those needing specia 1 

The French youths who come to 
the Chalet get an opportunity to re- 
cover from the terrible ordeals of 
wartime and to readapt themselves 
to normal life. A social and cultural 
program is conducted to avoid menta' 
stagnation and to stimulate construc- 
tive thought for the future. A music 
group giving weekly phonograph con- 
certs, a choir and a photography club 
have been formed. In addition, study 
groups discuss political issues and the 
problems to be faced in reforming u 
niversity life. 

The Combloux Rehabilitation Cen- 
ter has proved its worth by aiding 
in the physical recovery of students 
and helping them through coopera- 
tive living to prepare for future stud 
ies It has also enriched the life of 
the region where it is located by serv- 
ing as a cultural center. Other Cha- 
lets patterned after the one at Com- 
bloux are being planned for European 
students. This work is made partly 
possible by the generous giving of 
American students to the World Stu- 
dent Service Fund in drives on their 
respective campuses.

where do we go from here? Who a-

important question at one time or 
another? Perhaps the answer to this 
query will be known sooner than is 
generally expected. Very soon now, 
Congress is going to fix the date for 
the termination of the war emergen- 
cy. Around the same time our legis- 
lature will decide on the necessity for 
the continuation of the Draft Act,

North College shows that over a third 
of the WSSF pledge bai been col- 
lected. We are well on the way now. 
so let's keep up the good work and 
really put our drive over the top. 
Students all over the world are look- 
ing to the American colleges and 
universities to fulfill their pledge in 
rood faith. This means doing our 
share at Massachusetts State College. 

In record of "firsts" during the 
campaign, Kappa Alpha Theta house 
has a record to he proud of: with 
one hundred per cent cooperation, on 
the first day of the drive the girls 
pledged over the house total, with 
$71. The MSC German club too has 
set a record by donating $00 outright 
to the fund. 

Many campus clubs and sororities 
have made pledges to boost individual 
contributions. The faculty and admin- 
istration have set a goal of $000, and 
though no definite figures are avail- 
able, appearances show that they will 
make their goal 

In general collections have been 
slow in reporting their progress. 
Monday is the deadline, so lets all get 
behind the World Student Service 
Fund drive to make it successful.

New Midwestern Dean Of Women 
Likes MSC Spirit, Surroundings 

From outside New England's Iseon- travelled background, Amherst has 

ic bounds, Helen Curtis comes tt: 
State this year as newly appointed 
Dean of Women. To this position Miss 
Curtis brings a sincerely friendly 
manner with a flash of humor in it. 
She bring!, too, an alert, interested 
curiosity that promises her part in 
student guidance will be an under- 
standing one as the campus goes 
through the change from a wartime 
program to normalcy. 

Although she was born and hrought 
up in Iowa and Wisconsin, this is 
not Miss Curtis' first eastward sally 
Instead of the usual Mid westerner':: 
nostalgia for the warmer friendliness 
of that section, Miss Curtis frankly 
likes the East, and has proved it by- 
spending much of her time here. She 
comes to State from the New Jersey 
College for women (the feminine part 
of Rutgers), where she was assistant 


Miss Curtis had previously spent 
five years at the New York Stat" 
Teachers' College, where she was 
secretary of the. SCA and directed 
freshmen orientation. The size and 
energy of the Class of '49, MSC, in 
the first hectic days of this term, 
were thus nothing out of the ordinary 

to her. 

The Pean of Women's own student 
days were spent at Iowa State Col- 
lege. from which she received a Ra<h- 
elor's Degree in Sociology. Her grad- 
uate education includes a Master's 
Degree in Student Personnel at Co- 
lumbia, as well as study at the Uni- 
versities of London and Denver. 

Against the competition of such a 

beM kind enough to produce thesi 
last weeks some of its most golden 
weather to help encourage Miss 
Curtis' liking for our campus. A 
peacetime spirit of renewed vitality, 
too, has been apparent lately, and 
Miss Curtis commends MSC for hav- 
ing a forward-looking air. 

Still in the "getting-acquainted" 
stage, Miss Curtis is already planning 
ahead to the expansion that will prob- 
ably follow the end of war. She has 
been pleased to find excellent leader- 
ship in the WSGA and the quick re- 
sponse to the fund for World Student 
Service as signs of the active interest 
evident now which will help the col- 
lege as it grows. 

"It's a college with its eyes on the 
future," she said. — And Helen Curtis 
is a Dean of Women with her eyes on 
our future too.

The trainees would still be civilians 
and could be called to active service 
only by act of Congress. All physically 
fit young men would be taken for one 
year of training at age eighteen or at 
completion of hjgh school, whichever 
is later. Pre*. Truman emphasized 
that the year of training would con-

Each individual would be fitted for a 
potential defense job, according to his 
particular qualifications.

Quarterly Club Hears 
Speech On Dostoievsky 

Speaking in the crowded Seminar 
Room last Wednesday night, Mr. 
Arthur Monk discussed some aspects 
of Dostoievsky's The Brothers Kara- 
ma /.o v. He made the general point that 
the greatness of any literary work is 
determined only by the test of time; 
but that we may enjoy each work, in- 
dependently of this consideration, on 
various levels of emotional and intel- 
lectual experience. 

After a brief summary of the plot 
and of Dostoievsky's life, Mr. Monk 
limited himself to the discussion of 
of the philosophical elements of 
The Brothers Karamasov. He point- 
ed out the divergent outlooks of 
the brothers Dmitri and Ivan, central 
figures in the main plot. And he spoke 
of Alyosha, the youngest brother, as 
the incarnation of hope — of something 
positive. Alyosha, he maintained, Dos- 
toievsky considered the real hero of 
the novel. And the significance of his 
character he considered as the redeem- 
ing positive force from the defeatist 
note of the main action. 

Mr. Monk had, since his discharge 
from the Army, been a member of the 
English faculty of the College, as in- 
structor of the ASTRP's. He gradu- 
ated here in 1940 and left last Satur- 
day to attend the Yale Graduate 

A motion, that the group express 
itself in favor of re-submitting to the 
Academic Activities Board a petition 
for autonomous status of the Quarter- 
ly, was made and unanimously passed. 

The next meeting, a discussion on 
contributions submitted for publica- 
tion in the Quarterly, is to be held 
Wednesday, November 7. 

Mem Hall Exhibit 
Shows Water Colors 

A new water-color exhibit by Wal- 
ter Swan will be put on display at 
Memorial Hall Nov. 1 and will con- 
tinue through to Nov. 2(>. 

Born and educated in Boston, Mr. 
Swan attended the Lowell School of 
Design, Boston Museum of Fine Arts, 
Sargent, Concord, and Kingsbury, 
also doing independent work in Lon- 
don and Paris prior to World War I. 

He is a craftsman of the old school, 
a realist with a flair for detail and 
brilliant color, and a clever drafts- 
man. He paints what he sees and does 
not believe in trying to improve upon 
or distort nature, being a disciple of 
"Sanity in Art". 

A certain fascination surrounds hi? 
work and, through the use of a rare 
technique, many of his paintings sug- 
gest that he has captured a third 

Among the highlights are "Gen'l 
Beauregard's Courtyard", a portrayal 
of the past glories of New Orleans; 
"Thundering Surf", breaking waves 
after a Northeastern storm; and 
"Grindstone", a strikingly realistic 
study of still life.

Brooklyn College instigated the 
opening thrust as liernie Tannenbaum, 
visiting center, intercepted a Struz- 
liero pass, giving the Kingsmen the 
ball, deep in State territory. From 
there on, it was just a matter of time, 
■A Kunstler, Wilner, and Klein alter- 
ed in carrying the ball, with Klein 
finally pushing across from the two- 
van! line for the score. The attempted 

iorek, Jaainaki, and Tomchik plunged 
through gaping holes in the Brooklyn 
College line. The attack culminated 
With "Strut/." poaching over from the 
one-foot line for the equalising count- 
er. Bert Snyder converted the extra 
point to give the State team a short- 
lived lead. 

Brooklyn College ended the scoring

up extremely well, as l!("s harks 
knew they were hit by MSC players. 
In addition, mi, line play was extreme- 
ly effective both offensively snd de- 
fensively. This was particularly n<>- 
ticeable <>n the Ts yd. march as

Stall's linemen. Thirdly, the kicking,

On the other side uf the ledger, hnw-

factors. The passing, an important fea- 
ture in any attack, was a little dis- 
heartening. This, in a way, can h • 
blamed on the superior height of the 
Brooklyn College playen. Twice our 
passes failed to reach scrimmage line 
as they were hatted down hy long, 
rangy ends. However, this defect 
should he improved upon if we hope 
to he a strong offensive threat in the 
future. Then too, the c|uarterhacking, 
in my estimation, is definitely subject 
to some criticism. This was particular- 
ly true in the first quarter, when we 
attempted to pass for a first down, in- 
side our own thirty, only to have the 
pass intercepted, setting up the first

Scenes Of Amalf i Italy 
Displayed In Chapel 

hit II nt It Raphael 

In a recent letter to one of the 

faculty members, Major Curtis Clark, 
'35, wrote of his experiences In Berlin. 

\ portion «»f this letter, mi display in 
last week's Old Chapel exl, told 
how Major Curtis was the first man 
of his division to enter Berlin, and 
how he aided in the preparations for 

the entrance of the rest of his divi- 

In addition to this letter, and B 

photograph of Major Curtis, there 
was also exhibited ■ souvenir map 
made up by the 7th Armored Divi- 
sion, including all the military pi 
less made hy it from England to Her 
lin. This was sent hv Maior Curtis. 

At present, the exhibition concerns 
the paintings of the Neapolitan artist 
Battista. It is interesting to note the 
comparison between a photograph and 

a painting of Amalfi, one of the 
beauty spots of Italy. During the first 
world war, when Italv was shut off 
from tourists, one of the members of 
the German department, hrought hack 
to Amherst several of Rattista's 
paintings. The subject matter used 
by the artist was the scenery around 
Amalfi, whirh is across from Capri, 
near Pompeii and the bay of Naples 
His portrayals of this famous area 
are now preserved and displayed in 
numerous Amherst homes. 

With the first of four games under 

their belts, the M.S.C, gridmen will 

face the I'niversity of Maine eleven at 

• >t i> in Sat urdaj . 

The Maine hoys have lost two games 
and won none hut the losses WSM 
nothing to he emharrassed about. The 
Maine eleven lost first to Rhode Island 
State by only three points, 10-7, and 
then to a strong University of Con 
necticut team last Saturday by one 

touchdown, is 12. Coach Tommy Eck 
watched the former game and came 
away with the opinion that next Satur- 
day's opponents were not too formid- 
able an aggregation. However, after 
seeing what they did against Connec- 
ticut he has changed his opinion slight- 
ly and thinks his men will probably be 
in for a stiff fie,ht this coining week- 
end. In addition, he ventured the as 
sumption that the Pine Tree gridders 

must have improved considerably dur- 
ing the week hetween the Rhode Island 
and Connecticut games. 

Coach Eck stated also that the 
Down-easters had a rather heavy 
team, but the M.S.C. hoys showed that 
heavy teams didn't affect them too 
much last Saturday. The hoys from 

Platbush outweighted them 16 pounds 

per man, which is a tremendous weight 
advantage, hut the Statesmen refused 
to he upset hy that fact. 

Yes, prospects look much brighter 

this coming Saturday than they did 
last Saturday. The M.S.C. hoys have a 
better than even chance of winning 
and, as we mentioned before, will 
probably be the favorites. 

Incidentally, the M.S.C. team will 
leave by bus for OrOM early Kriday 
morning In case some of you would 
like to give them a sendoff. 

The probable starting lineup for 
State Saturday will be as follows:

It, "Red" Sullivan; 
Ig, Cyril Desautels;

WSSF Drive Ends 
$750 From Goal 

World Student Service Fund missed 
the goal of $3,000. At the official 
closing of the drive on Monday, Oct. 
29 the money received totalled $2,250. 
$300, one-tenth of the goal, was 
contributed by the faculty. Although 
some collectors have not handed in 
their reports, and the Student Hockey 
game should bring in additional 
funds, the drive will not "go over the 


$3,000 was not intended as merely 
an optimistic boast. The goal was es- 
tablished with consideration toward 
the pressing needs of the organization 
and the amount of money the average 
student could afford to contribute. 
However the drive was a failure! 

M.S.C. students, solicitors, and the 
W.S.S.F. committee, were all to 
blame. Janet Robinowitz and Art 
Peck drafted the 60 collectors who 
were supposedly "well versed in the 
purpose of the fund." Their choice 
was based on the geographical loca 
tion of the collector's home. In many 
cases they did not know the collectors 
personally and they chose students 
who were unable to give time or ef- 
fort to the drive. The collectors as a 
whole were poor 

However, Gloria Harrington mad* 
an outstanding record by obtaining 
100 per cent support from Kappa Al 
pha Theta. Some other solicitors, too, 
did put time and effort into the drive 
and got results. 

Reverend Easton worked hard to 
put the drive over, speaking to the 
students and to the collectors. Evi- 
dently the collectors did not have 
enough spirit themselves, and were 
thus unable to arouse the spirit of 
M.S.C. students. Method of approach 
was partly to blame. Some of the col- 
lectors actually apologized for having 
to ask for money. Others just asked 
for a contribution without mentioning 
that the expected pledge was $3. 

The committee and collectors were 
inefficient, but the students them- 
selves did not give the drive full co- 
operation. It is not too late, now, for 
the W.S.S.F. drive is still on unoffici- 
ally, but the results as of Monday are 

Dr. Caldwell will tpcakon the topic-

Wood Refuses Library Facilities 
To United Religious Council 

Two weeks ago today, three stu- 
dents, representing the three religious 
groups included in the United Reli- 
gious Council, approached Mr. Basil 
B. Wood, MSC librarian, requesting 
the use of a table in the library for 
display purposes, the space to be di- 
vided among the groups. Literature 
of all three religions would be shown. 

Mr. Wood's answer started off with 
a definite refusal for the loan of a 
table. He went on to ask that, if he 
allowed the use of the table, would 
they mind if he set out another dis- 
play "debunking the whole thing"? 

The Librarian of Massachusetts 
State College then proceeded to tell 
each of the three girls that, if she 
thought herself right in her beliefs, 
her two companions must then be 
wrong. Under those circumstances, ac- 
cording to Mr. Wood, it would be a 
default of faith to allow the literature 

of any one helief to be displayed a- 
longside that of any other. Sometime 
during the discussion our Librarian 
brought forth a book purporting to 
show why a certain number of Cath- 
olic priests apostasized. 

Soon after the discussion Mr. Wood 
remarked to another student that he 
had prevented the U.R.C fro:n dis- 
seminating what he called "filthy 

There is at present a library dis- 
play of Mr. Wood's own books that, 
in his opinion, serve to counteract the 
"misinformation" contained in re- 
quired reading for various courses. 

Mr. Wood holds to the absolute, 
uncompromising belief in a particu- 
lar theology. 

The United Religious Council be- 
lieves that, in spite of doctrinal differ- 

I.ahoratorics, who will be at MSC to 
lecture and hold "check-up confer

which will sponsor informal dances 
when there are no other social func-

Quarterly Issues Call 
For New Contributions 

The editors of the Collegian Quar-

for possible publication in the first is- 
sue of the Quarterly. All kinds of fic- 
tion, verse, essay, and expository wri- 
tings are desired, and should be left at 
Dr. Goldberg's mailbox in Old Chapel 
as soon as possible. 

Students hesitant about the merits 
of their writings should give the Quar- 
terly Editorial Board an opportunity 
of considering their creative work. 

It should be ephasized that no one 
special kind of material is desired by 
the editors. On the contrary, every 
conceivable kind of written work will 
he considered, this includes scientific 
papers, as well a* the traditional liter- 
ary types. 

Instructors of the various depart- 
ments and schools are urged to recom- 
mend writable material for the publi- 
cation in the Quarterly.

School Spirit 

I »ear Editor, 

In the past few years of non- 
activity in sports, much has been said 
of the college spirit on campus Some 
have thought of it in terms of latent 
and potential enthusiasm having no 
opportunity for expression. Others 
have been of the opinion that there 

was still much tacking. But neil 

faction could prove its point. 

With the advent of collegiate foot- 
ball, there ii now much that can be 
said. First, we refer to the Brooklyn 
game. While the turnout was

how about the corresponding cheer- 
ing? Most of the cheering seemed to 

be unorganized and individual. But 
we have cheerleaders. Accept that, 
and we continue on to this: why 

didn't they lead the c a 

very simple. .lust look at the i 

of the player as he walks off the field, 

refer to the schedule of the li;!' 

ell I Yet BO slow were they, 

that not only did they miss ehe, rin 
many of the i' 1 " c iming off 

field, but even seemed reluctant In 
their response to the othi 

With that we return to the Maine 
e. This \.-ai our second game of 

the year. Surely, BO early in the 
season, interest should have still been 
riding high. Further, it was the first 
game to be played off camnua. Undei 

these circumstances, could not BOH 
provisions have been made or at 

least offered — for those students 
who would have liked to have made 
the trip? Or are all our organizations 
too Involved with their own particular 
interests to lend their effort? I speak 
in particular of such a sorority as 
Isogon, or of the Senate (since it has i 
taken over the duties of Adelphia). 
These are honorary societies to pro- 
mote just such school activity and 
spirit. Then a^ain, does the college 
have any interest — or any right to 
interest — in this matter? Could not 
arrangements have been made at a 
mininum cost? Or does such activity 
have to wait for the last minute, for 
some school-spirited individual to take 
it upon herself to get a movement 
started? Does such an activity have 
to stem from one interested person? 
I question the need of the latter. 

Let us dwell a moment on school 

spirit, if you please. It is simply 

spirit motivated by a sincere feeling 

for the college and its standards, by

failure, said the President. "A loss of 
faith in international cooperation 
would be dangerous at any time. In 

an atomic age it would be nothing 

short of disesterous.' 


The speech was delivered at a time 
when international cooperation was 

at its lowest ebb in years. Relations 

with Russia have been strained for 
several weeks. Among the contribut- 
ing factors were the deadlock of the 
London Conference, Russia's Insist-

Tall ones, short ones, fat or thin,

dance, peanuts, popcorn, cracker- 
jacks— anything? Millions of dances 
to go to, but whom with? I could al- 
ways dress up in pants and take my 
roommate; but a fraternity dance 
needed GIRLS. So I said to my room- 
mate; "Don't quite remember what he 
looks like, but he is always in the

guess it'll take my eyelash curler, Max

With proud battlewagons of the 
United States Navy peacefully riding 
at anchor, President Truman last 
Saturday defined American foreign 
policy. He spoke in New York on 
Navy Day, while simultaneous exer- 
cises were being held in port instal- 
lations from Boston to Shanghai. 

The president once again enumer- 
ated the American ideals — freedom, 
democracy, friendship, equality of op- 
portunity. The President was follow- 
ing the convictions of his immortal 
predecessors, Woodrow Wilson and 
Franklin Roosevelt. 

Self -Determination 

He emphasized the American inter- 
pretation of democratic self-determin- 
ation of peoples: "We believe in the 
eventual return of sovereign rights 
to all peoples who have been deprived 
of them by force. . ,W« shall approve 
no territorial changes in any part of 
the world unless they accord with 
the wishes of the people concerned. . . 
We shall refuse to recognise any gov- 
ernment imposed upon any nation by 
the force of any foreign power." 

While the speech did little to clari- 
fy differences among the Rig Three, 
it was concluded with a message of 
hope and optimism: "In our posses- 
sion of the atomic bomb there is HO 
to any nation. The world, 
which has seen the United States in 
two great recent wars, knows that 
full well. . .Differences of the kind 
that exist today among the nations

This reporter has always believed 
that a little constructive criticism 
never does any harm, and often ac- 
complishes some good. With that 
thought in mind, we'd like to give our 
humble opinions on the food situation 
at Draper Hall However, let it be 
firmly understood that we are not en- 
deavoring to blame anyone for any- 
thing, but are merely attempting to 
state the facts as we see them. 

We believe that the meals served at 
Draper are not all what they should 
be. In laying this we're taking into 
account the food as a whole, or what 
we consider to be the average meal. 
Briefly then, here are our views on 
the food we eat : 

Breakfast: Nothing wrong with the 
eggs if they're cooked right, but the 
scrambled eggs never are. And 
poached eggs-"cat's eyes"-always look 
so wonderfully appetizing swimming 
in the water on your tray. The toast, 
if you can call it that, is practically 
always soggy. And, pray tell, why on- 
ly three bottles of milk per day? 
Most of the fellows could drink twice 
that amount. 

Lunch and supper: the vegetables 
often lack flavor, and, as for the 
meat, well there just isn't nearly as 
much as there should be. And what 
meat there is, is rarely of first qual- 
ity. Of course the Sunday dinner is 
always excellent, which often makes 
us wonder if that is just a show to 
impress the visiting parents. 

As a rule, when considering the 
merits of anything, a criterion is 
necessary. The type of meals served 
to A.S.T.R.P.'s at other colleges and 
universities is, in this case, a helpful 

One of the men here, who prior to 
enlisting worked in the A.S.T.R.P. 
mess hall at Princeton University, 
has given us some interesting infor- 
mation. According to him, the standard 
of the meals was much higher, with 
better meat served in larger quanti- 
ties, and all the milk you could drink. 
(And Princeton doesn't have an Agri- 
cultural College with its own herd.) 

One of this reporters' friends, who 
is an K.R.C. at Rutgers University, 
which is now N. .1. State University 

"You asked me about the food here 

at Rutgers. Well that's a happy topic,

somewhat stilled, the Statesmen put 
on a sustained drive of their own 
starting from their own 1 yard line 
and culminating on the Maine 15, The 
attack filtered out as the Orono lads 
put up a stiff defense. 

Offensive thrusts were parried back 
and forth as the wind, blowing at S^Ue 
velocity, hindered the attacks of 
both teams. State received its break 
late in the second quarter when a 
Maine punt from their own 15 went 
short and was picked up by Meagher, 
who carried the ball to the Down- 
eastern l<> yd. line. From there Tom- 
chik bulled his way over to put the 
Collegians in the lead, <; to o. Berl 
Snyder failed to convert from place 
ment, and at the >nd of the half the 
Statesmen led by '< points. 

That was all the scoring for the rest 
of the afternoon as the State team, 
bothered by the wind and questionable 
penalties, failed to reach paydirt 
again. Our line, which previous to the 
Maine game had played good foot- 
ball, continued its excellent record. In 
addition, our kicking and passing im- 
proved, though held in check by the 
me; winds.

ly. Proof in tlio pudding, as the Bay 
ing goes, can be found in a statement 

made by B Maine spectator last Sat 
unlay who said, 'That Slate line sun- 
is giving us ■ hell of a heat in;.:." 

From this corner here it can be 
said, and rightly SO, that State has 
improved considerably in the past two 
weeks. In addition, the return of Bob 
Ryan, letterman in baseball, has 
strengthened the wine; positions. All 
these factors will add up i at her im- 
portantly when the <>ft honored name 
with Amherst College comes up. 

Incidentally mirht I add that I 
spent Saturday aften n at I 'rat t 

Field watching the Amherst Informals 
play the Dartmouth J.Vs. Don't let 

that Informal business fool you for 
the Lord .lell's are far from being off 
the record. Although the score showed 
that the Datrmouth lads came out on 
top it does not mean that State is in 
for a hreather a week from this Sat. 
when they tackle the Jonesmen. On 

pitchers mi the table anil there's no 
limit to the amount consumed. Now 
aren't you sorry you didn't join up 
with me for the July term?" 

Well, readers, you've heard the 
facts now judge for yourself.

Weekend Hopes Bright 

Raving named it's first victory of 

the season last Saturday, the Mass. 
State football eleven will face the 

Universit) of Maine again this week 

with increased Confidence and a new 
determination to win its second of 

three games. The local gridstera will 

he the logical favorites this weekend 

because of their triumph over the 

DoWneaSterS last week hut they won't, 
have an BBS] game on their hands, 
by any means. The Maine line is tre- 

mendoua compared with the msc [ins, 

But, on the other hand, if the States- 
men were able to puncture it last 

week there is no reason why they 
should not he able to do the tame 
this Saturday, 
Then too, the fact that the team is 

playing at home will doubtless show- 
in its performance. 

In addition, the Kckmen will prob- 
ably gel a "squarer deal" from the 

officials this week. A grsal mam pen- 

• were inflicted on them last 

week, the causes of which were often 

dubious. The only thing which would 

go against the local gridmen Satur- 
day would he overconftdence on their 

part and so far as we have detected 

i here is e of that. 

the contrary, Amherst has always 
been known to have some sori of trick 
up it's sleeve and this year should 
prove no exception. However, that is 
something that can he pointed to more 
definitely next week. 

The main thing which confronts the 
hoys this week is the Maine frame. 
Hoping that the weather Improves 
over last week I feel that we can look 
forward to a more* wide open frame 
with State ultimately coming out on 
top in a close fought hall gaSSS. 

As an interesting sidelight 1 you 

might like to know that Mass. Slate 
has an entry, in the name of Bill

Sadie Hawkins Dance 

Continued from page 1 
program is sponsored by Senate 
and WSGA. 

Be sure to follow these six easy 
rules for Sadie Hawkin's Day: (1) 
Everyone should dress for the entire 
day; (2) Girls get their own dates; (3) 
Girls cut in; (4) Girls pay for couples; 
(.-,» Stags allowed; (6) ASTRP's al- 
lowed if they come dressed in fatigues. 

The A.STRP band is going to play. 
The old students who are in the band, 
and who are staying to do all of us a 
favor deserve a lot of thanks and ap- 

The price of admission is 50 cents 
for stags, and !»"> cents a couple. 


School Spirit 

Continued from pane 2 
those who have been privileged to 
enjoy and participate in the college 
atmosphere The team has captured 
this spirit. They are willing to sacri- 
fice much, in time, energy, and limb, 
to give Mass. State a squad of whom 
to be proud They don't msasUttS then- 
spirit. They have it! 

Yet there are many students who 
have measured theirs, and measured it 
in terms of money. There were many 
willing to go for the price of $2.00. 
They were willing to give the time, 
the sleep, etc. to go. They were ready 
to go to cheer the team on, to uphold 
the spirit of Mass. State, so they said 
Oh yes, that was why they were 
motivated. They all spoke of how 
wonderful the team would feel when 
they saw this support behind them, 
300 miles from home. 

Oddly enough, this fine spirit 
changed when it was to be shown to 
the tune of $7.00. To those who 
could not afford it, nothing is being 
said, nor does anyone have the right 
to direct anything against these 
people. However, it seems as though 
from the many coeds on campus, there 
would be the embarrassingly small 
number of 80 girls who could spend 
$7.00 to make the trip. (Mass. State 
campus has never seen so much money 
in the student body as it has this year, 
and there are still jobs aplenty ) Are 
there not even that number who could 
afford along with the $7.00, the time, 
the sleep, etc. that they could have 
afforded for $2.00? 

Or is the answer to all this, that 
8 o long as our own individual and sel- 
fish way of life is undisturbed, that 
so long as we needn't expend too much 
effort or energy, why then, of course. 
well be school spirited and ready to 
Uphold our dear Alma Mater. 

It was not an attitude such as this 
that changed M. A. C into M. S. C. , 
And it is not an attitude such as this 
that will change M. S. C. into the U. 

of Mass.! . ,

Amherst Weekend Opens With Rally And Dance Tomorrow Night 

Rosene, Wood Are Dogpatch Favorites 
Chosen By Al Capp At Sadie Hawkins 

Skonk Hollow, Dogpatch Village, 
(Mass. State Campus, the weekend of 
November 8) is proud to announce 
that thirty of their fleet-footed "Daisy 
Maes" hog-tied thirty "Lil' Abners" 
good and proper. The wedding cere- 
mony was performed for these Skonk 
Hollow beauties by "Marryin' Sam" 
(Dave Boehnke) who rode up on his 
trusty mare immediately after the 
Sadie Hawkins race (before the men 
could get away) . The race, of course, 
was officially started by the shot of 
Mammy Yokum's (Mrs. Van Orden) 
gun. The race was between the halves 
of the Maine — Mass. State game. 

The big celebrations were held at 
night at the Drill Hall when 250 
Daisy Maes and Lil' Abners turned out 
for the Sadie Hawkin's dance. The 
Skonk Hollow boys (the Veterans' 
Association) did a right good job of 
fixing up the hall in Dogpatch style 
with a Kickapoo Joy Juice stand, a 
wishing well in the center and an 
outhouse, inside. The walls were 
doc-orated with leaves and Daisy Mae 

A gay "scent" was added to the 
evening by the non-descented skonk 
outside the door and Lil' Abner's 
prize pig "Salomy". "Salomy" caught

the spirit of the celebration and was 
paraded through the dance hall several 
times all dashed up in blue bows. 

Thanks goes to the boys of the 
A.S.T.R.P. band who provided real 
"smooth-citified" music for the Shin- 

The "Judge" (Al Capp, creator of 
Lil' Abner cartoons) picked out the 
prize "Daisy Mae", Lois Rosene, and 
prize "Lil' Abner", Dave Wood who 
were crowned by runner-up Janet 
Kehl. As a reward to the "Judge" for 
his trouble, he was given a chance to 
dip into the Wishing Well. His prize 
was an engraved wallet. 

The spirit of Sadie Hawkins shook 
the rafters in the Drill Hall as the 
girls went after their men and every- 
one danced. There were a few Paul 
.louses and a Conga line, an- 
nounced by the mistress of cere- 
monies. Olga Harcovitz. No one even 
noticed that it was a dance hall with- 
out chairs as no one sat down except 
\\ hen the 2. r >0 couples sat on the floor 
to sing school songs and to cheer the 
football team. 

The chaperoiies, Mr. Jack Shand, 
Dr. William Ross, Dr. Marian Smith, 
and Dean Curtis wore their best Sun- 
day-go-to-meetin' Dogpatch clothes. 
Luckily, Dr. Ross had a pair of over- 
alls donated to him by a co-ed so he 
could appear in the proper style. 

The "Sadie Hawkins" dance was 
such a success that the $200 profit 
will be put in the dance fund for 
future campus dances.

Dissension In China 

With negotiations still going on in 
Chunking, the undeclared civil war 
continues unabated in eleven provinces 
of North China. The fighting is still 
on an informal basis, with skirmishes 
and sieges rather than any pitched 
battles. Both sides have the arms and 
troops for complete civil war, but 
neither is willing to take the initiative 
and thereby be condemned in the eyes 
of the peace-loving nations of the 

It may have seemed strange to 
| some that while the leader of the 
Yenan Communists, Gen. Mao, was 
conferring with Chiang Kai-shek's 
Central Government in Chunking, 
fighting should suddenly break out. 
This was because of the Chunking 
Government's insistence on sending 
nationalist troops into North China 
to occupy the railroad lines. The Cen- 
tral Government maintained that in 
a sovereign state the lines of commu- 
nication must be protected. 

Thus, as soon as Nationalist troops 
entered North China, the Yenan 
Communists resisted. The Communists 
have declared that no Government 
troops can enter their eleven provinces 
until a fundamental agreement is 
reached in Chungking between Gen. 
Mao and Gen. Chiang. 

But the fundamental differences 
between the two rival groups are 
more basic than mere troop move- 
ments. China has had two govern- 
ments ever since the Japanese attack 
at the Marco Polo Bridge. The Central 
Government coalition, under the lead- 
ership of Chiang, was made up almost 
exclusively of one party-the Koumin-

beginning of a new age. Then again, he may say that it was 

thought directed toward an ideal never realized. Anyway: 

There will cornea time when man realizes he is insignificant;

I guess that we have proved to 
the world at large that a game isn't 
won by a gust of wind. Amherst is 
something else again, still, if the 
wind is with us. we'll let it blow. 

The Maine rally wasn't too well 
attended to put it mildly. The Amherst 
rally should be jammed-packed. 
"We've got the pep, we've got the 
steam, we've got the coach, we've got 
the TEAM." Also the Social Commit- 
tee is sponsoring a "Gridiron Dance" 
after the rally. Let's not make it a 
'Flatiron Dance". Participation ex- 
pected!! Also big surprise on refresh- 
ment table. 

The round- robin dances of Saturday 
nite will herald the return of the "blue 
light" so long absent from our midst. 

The "Soc." classes have been fre- 
quenting the courts (of justice, not 
tennis) in "Hamp" lately, merely as 
observers we hope. Anyhoo, as one 
brilliant student said, "The court-crier 
told us to take our seats, but I couldn't 
take mine very far, because the sher- 
iff made me put it down." 

W.S.C.A. is getting "on the ball" 
and is trying to rejuvenate all we coed 
"Sad Sacks" of MSC. Great for the 
ego. Maybe the Senate could help the 
male population! 

We see that the A.S.T.R.P. is 

agitating for more food. We haven't 
noticed that many look like vitamin- 
deficients, but the good people that 
feed them should remember that they 
are growing boys. 

That popular nite-spot "Johnny's" 
was mobbed last Saturday nite. The 
Drill Hall had a good crowd too, but 
it occurs to us that the Drill Hall 
could have had a bigger crowd, by a 
transfer of revelry and SCHOOL 

The howl of laughter that bellowed 
over campus last Thursday, was 
merely the seniors when they saw 
themselves as others see them. Any- 
how, it was good for laughs. 

Where "Grandy's" used to be strict- 
ly for the male, or the escorted fe- 
male on a daring date, it is now a 
popular eating place for the coeds. 
Those carved initials claim many 
memories. Eton has nothing on 
Grande's. Buy bonds.

If it weren't that someone had al- 
ready coined the phrase, we might call 
this week's offering Random Harvest. 
Sort of a "didja ever notice?" or "re- 
member" or even "whaddya think of" 

Whaddya think of the continuous 
procession of bicycles across the 
mazes of our meadows and the cross- 
walks of our campus? Almost like 
horses, they dip and prance at the ap- 
proach of a sidewalk and careen 
just as wildly around corners. The 
only thing they lack is the good hard 
clumping sound of hoofs to warn 
simple pedestrians that their backs 
are liable to injury if they don't accept 
the fact that one's fair share is half. 

While we're discussing injuries 
(painful thought) and transportation, 
has anyone else been scared blue by 
motorists dashing madly through our 
campus—or are we just pansies? 

The biggest thing in mind this week 
is Amherst Week-End. Unable to trust 
our own rather weak meteorology, we 
rose with the sun this A.M. to find out 
what friend Roy Lundquist, WTTC's 
boy-wonder, would have to say on the 
subject of Saturday's weather. And 
it's a good thing, too. Unlike all pro- 
ceeding Amherst Week-end football 
days for at least forty years, it will 
not rain. As a matter of fact, red 
flannels may even be the order of the 

"What's Amherst Week-end any- 
how?"- "Gee, I used to think of it 
verseas." "Mmn, shades of freshman 

Of course, the way we look at it, 
Hound Robin Dances means every 
house on campus, but we're grateful to 
the three stalwart fraternities anyhow. 

What's wrong in this picture? 
Seems as though it's the girls who are 
doing all the importing this year. 
We'll be seeing you among the un- 
familiar faces, or if you happen to 
see my girl and her date, tell her I'm

World At A Glance

tang Nationalists. During the war, 
political parties in southern China 
were suppressed and the Central 
Government's rule was highly auto- 
cratic. But this Chiang explained on 
the basis of the expediency of war. 
Chiang promised that as soon as 
peace conditions were possible, democ- 
racy would be established in China 
and that a representative govern- 
ment would be elected. 

The Communist stronghold is in 
North China, with the capital at 
Yenan. The Communist domain in- 
cludes much of the industrial wealth 
of China, which is one reason why 
Chiang is so anxious to send in occu- 
pational troops. During the war the 
Communists supported independent 
armies and waged their own war 
against the Japanese. Liaison between 
the two Chinese governments was 
very poor, and on many occasions the 
Communists accused the Central 
Government of concentrating Govern- 
ment troops to watch the Reds, rather 
than to fight the Japanese. 

The Communists believe that the 
Chungking government is too con- 
servative. The power of the war lords 
is too great, they point out, and they 
are not sure that democratic reforms 
will be insured. 

Both governments have common 
objectives, but neither is willing to 
trust the other. Negotiations have 
been going on since September, but so 
far no working agreement has been 
reached. If real civil war should 
break out, China would be faced with 
one of it's bloodiest wars in centuries. 
Thus both Yenan and Chungking have 
been cautious so far, because neither 
wants any more blood spilled in their 
already destitute country. Even though 
fighting is still going on, prospects 
for peace are not hopeless. 

An important consideration is the 
presence of American marines in the 
ports of North China. The Yenan 
government has charged us with en- 
couraging the Nationalist troop move- 
ments into Communist domain. How 
true these reports are, we cannot say; 
but the United States cannot afford to 

interfere in China's internal dissen- 
sions. Surely no American blood 
should be spilled over petty Chinese 
political differences. 

If any foreign interference is made 
in China, it should be on behalf of 
the United Nations Security Organiza- 
tion. But the United Nations have not 
yet reached the point of development 
where it can demand peace in China. 
Some day — when international organi- 
zation is stronger — violence will have 
been outlawed as an instrument of 
national policy, and all dissensions — 
internal, as well as external — will be 
subject to compulsory and final arbi-

films of universal interest and im- 
portance. Now the mastitis laboratory 
has been badly needed for some time. 
It is important that there be one, and 
I applaud the plan to establish it For 
mastitis is probably the most obnox- 
ious, the most ruinous, and the most 
pervasive disease of cattle that the 
farmer is plagued with. And a test: ng 
and control system is necessary not 
only for the well-being of the herd on 
the college farm, hut as a eente ■ of 
guidance to farmers in the coo 
the valley, the state, and even in New 
England, as a phase of extension 
service such as the college is expect- 
ed to render in its capacity of State 
agricultural station. 

Furthermore, Stockbridpe Hall, the 
headquarters of the School of Agri- 
culture, is obviously the logical place 
to establish such a laboratory. But, in 
the first place, is Room 80 the only 
possible available space? I know of 
one or two large classrooms on the 
second floor which are not always 
used and rarely filled. Considering 
the urgent need of a mastitis labo- 
ratory, could not any of these be par- 
titioned off, if not devoted to this 
purpose in its entirety ? Or, granting 
that Room 20 is the most convenient, 
by its location in the basement 
and its size, for the new lab- 
oratory, could not any of the other 
rooms in Stockbridge Hall or any- 
where else on campus, or a reasonable 

part of one, be granted to an effort 
that was attended with so much good 
will and made use of with such satis- 
faction as the Information Service? 
I do not know whose or what rea- 
soning wiped out the result of at 
least three years of concentrated ef- 
fort and expenditure in time and 
energy certainly, on the part of Prof. 
Dickinson. It indicates to me a com- 
plete lack, not only of consideration 
for this effort of active good will, but 
of an appreciation of the result as an 
effective and invaluable contribution. 
The Information Service bulletins and 
daily papers, foreign and domestic 
publications, served as a wealth of 
source material for both students 
and faculty members. And an increas- 
ing number of people were beginning 
to enjoy the technicolor travel films 
and the stories of technological de- 
velopment — all of which have been 
so summarily cut off. 

There are those among us who want 
Prof. Dickinson to continue this ser- 
vice. Is there a valid reason against 
its existance?

Report of Meetings of All Club 
Presidents Discussing a Plan for 
Scheduling Extra-curricular Activi- 

At the end of last semester a meet- 
ing of all club presidents was held at 
which a plan for scheduling meetings 
was presented. The schedule was ac- 
cepted temporarily. This fall the 
schedule was presented to each group 
for approval of their time of meeting, 
and on Oct. 29 another meeting of the 
presidents was called. The schedule 
was revised and the following sug- 
gestions were made: 

1. That the plan be presented to 
WSGA and Senate for approval. 

2. That if approved, Senate and 
WSGA should set up an administra- 
tive body to act as a clearing house 
for meetings not regularly scheduled. 

8. That this body be composed of 
two men and two women appointed 
by Senate and WSGA. 

The following suggestions are gen- 
oral principles which wotddbeeari ad 

out by such a body: 

1. That a schedule of meeting be 
■eat to the president's office. 

2. That all meetings other than 
those regularly scheduled be reported 
to the (.resident's office and the ad- 
ministrative committee not less than 
two weeks in advance of the mee- 

I Thli does not include very HI 
meetings which would not conflict 
with other groups ) 

8. That meetmi-s of interest to the 
whole campus scheduled hy any club 
be free from conflict. This to be ac- 
complished by the agreement of all 
Hubs to postpone their meetings in the 
Case of such an all-campus event, or 
arrange the club meeting from 7 to M; 
ai '! the all-rampus meeting from 8 on. 
(All campus meetings include con- 
certs, WSGA meetings, Senate ■ 
ings, social union, important speakers 

4. That Friday and Saturday nights 
be reserved for dances and special 
entertainment. That Sunday after- 
noon be reserved for vespers.

club, Roister Doister, etc., be allowed 
to meet for special rehearsals at any 
time when preparing for perfor-

Japanese Erect Billboard Tribute To 
MSC Founders Of Sapporo University 

Agricultural Education in Japan 
was started by Dr. W. S. Clark, once 
president of Massachusetts State Col- 
lege, in the founding of Sapparo Uni- 
versity (present Hokkaido Univer- 
sity) in 1876-1877. He lived in Sap- 
paro as the founder and Dean of the 
Agricultural College. General Horace 
Capron came to Japan In 1871-1875 
and devoted himself for the construc- 
tion of national highways, exploration 
of mines, and introduction of Ameri- 
can methods of agriculture in Hok- 
kaido. Both of these men were from 
the college. The Japanese have re- 
cently erected in the central square 
of the city two billboards approxi- 
mately 30 feet long and 12 feet high. 
The following statement in bright 
yellow and blue lettering was printed 
in English and Japanese: 

"To all American Gentlemen: 

Hokkaido was originally ex- 
plored and cultivated about sev- 
enty years ago by the kindest 
instruction of two great American 
leaders, General Capron, the com- 
missioner and adviser to the pro- 
vincial government, and Dr. 
Clark, founder of the Hokkaido 
Imperial University. 

Accordingly, we have not for- 
gotten our respect and best re- 
gard toward you Americans since 
these days. We heartily wish that 
you will instruct us to influence 

MSC Welcomes Back 
Dr. Bryon Redmon 

by Jean Robert* 

To succeed our retired professor 
of chemistry, Dr. Peters, we have a 
new member of our chemistry depart- 
ment. He is Dr. Redmon, who has 
spent the fifteen years since receiv- 
ing his Bachelor's degree at the Uni- 
versity of Kentucky in studying, re- 
search, and industrial chemistry, 
punctuated with periods of time spent 
here at M. S. C. 

He first came here in 1930 to spend 
four years studying for his Ph D., 
and working as an assistant in chem- 
istry. From here he went to Germany 
to take a post graduate course in phys- 
ical chemistry at the University of 
Berlin, and at Fiankfort-am-Main. 
Evidently irresistably drawn to M. S. 
C, Dr. Redmon again returned in 
1936 as an instructor in chem. 

Since then, he has been a research 
chemist for the American Cyanamid 
Co., at Pittsburgh, where he directed 
a group working on the organic com- 
pounds of nitrogen, and for the cen- 
tral research laboratory at Stanford. 
Now he has reached a state of "sus- 
pended animation" (quotation from 
Dr. Redmon) on our campus. We, the 
negative particles involved, are glad 
to welcome you back, Doctor! 

the welfare and peace of all in- 
habitants of this beautiful island. 

Truly yours, 
All Sapporo Citizens" 

At each end of the billboard was a 
large portrait of Dr. Clark and Mr. 

Professor Brooks and Mr. William 
Wheeler also from Mass. State Col- 
lege, were connected with this Uni- 
versity and both received decorations 
from the Japanese government in 
appreciation of the helpful services 
rendered. The decoration given to Mr. 
Wheeler is now in possession of the 
college and may be seen in the Presi- 
dent's office. 

The information was delivered to 
the Dean by a letter from a former 
student Lt. Cmdr. S. C. Bartlett, Jr. 
U.S.N.R., now stationed in Tokyo.

clubs were beginning and if you 
joined one or more there were dues to 
be paid. On top of that before we can 
catch our breath, the Concert Associa- 
tion is soliciting members. We just 
begin to think we're back on our feet 
and then we hear a Bond Drive men- 
tioned! Is there no end to the things 
people can suggest to take away the 
few pennies we have left after paying 
our bills and buying our books? 

Few people realize how many stu- 
dents are putting themselves through 
college and how difficult it is to make 
ends meet. We work through the sum- 
mer, have a part-time job while we 
are studying, and sacrifice many 
things we would like to have and do 
in order to get an education. Those 
students whose parents pay their bills 
and keep them in spending money 
don't realize what it is like to do it 
all themselves. It is very simple to say 
"Give" but it is quite another thing 
to find the money. The fact that so 
many students are working is no 
proof that they have more money. 
It seems to indicate that more stu- 
dents must work because they 
wouldn't be working if it wasn't 

It is very discouraging to have 
someone say the students didn't co- 
operate or that the collectors were to 
blame because the drive did not go 
over the top. The collectors worked 
hard and put in much precious time 
and it is unfair to criticize them so 
harshly. If the students are finan- 
cially unable to give, how can tne 
collectors be at fault.? Also, those 
who think our school spirit can be 
measured by the amount of money we 
can give to this and that are certainly 
being very thoughtless and incon- 
siderate as well as unfair. 

It seems to be asking too much to

State Defeats Maine 14-13; To Defeat Amherst This Weekend 

A strong MSC eleven scored its 
second successive triumph over the 
U. of Maine Black Bears, 14 to 13. 
Bert Snyder converted perfectly af- 
ter both touchdowns, providing the 
margin of victory, and allowing the 
Eckmen to sweep the two game series 
with the Down-easters. 

The opening quarter provided the 
home team with a lead that was never 
to be relinquished. Starting from 
their own 35 yd line the Statesmen 
drove 65 yds. as Tommy Tomchik, Ed 
Struzziero, and Dick Lee, alternately 
handling the ball, ploughed through 
gaping holes in the Maine forward 
wall. Dick Lee plunged over from the 
2 yd. line for the score. Snyder con- 
verted and the Statesmen were ahead, 

There was no further scoring until 
early in the second quarter when a 
touchdown pass from dates to Wood- 
worth culminated a <',:. yd. Maine ad- 
vance. However Dombkowski'.s inabil- 
ity to convert the extra point proved 
extremely costly, leaving the States- 
men with a one point advantage. 
There was no further scoring in the 

first half. 

State's powerful drive was ex- 
tremely evident in the third quarter 
as Tomchik, Struzziero, Lee, and Ja- 
sinski barged through the Maine line 
to advance the ball 55 yds. for their 
second td. of the afternoon. Once 
again it was Dick Lee who plunged 
over for the score. Snyder success- 
fully converted, to put the Statesmen 
ahead 14 to 6. However the Down- 
easters were not to be denied, as they 
tried desperately to score. 

lady Luck showed herself to the 
disadvantage of the State team when 
a Henderson kick put the ball on the 
State 2 yd. line. With time running 
out, Barton, MSC halfback, attempted 
to run off right tackle, but as he was 
hit the ball squirted out of his hands 
and landed directly into the out- 
■1 •■etched arms of Dombkowski, op- 
nosing back, who scored easily. This 
time the same Dombkowski converted 
and the score stood 14 to 13 in favor 
of State This ended the scoring for 
the afternoon as State squelched the 
final effort of Maine to win the ball

State won its second successive 
victory of the season last Saturday, 
proving almost conclusively that Tom- 
my Bek and Red Ball have come up 
with an extremely good ball club this 
season. Although, in the past, I have 
refrained from giving verbal pats on 
the back, I would like this week, how- 
ever, to praise the performances of 
two outstanding competitors. Dick Lee 
and Bert Snyder. Both boys were in- 
strumental in State's victory last Sat., 
and both played under physical handi- 
caps. Dick had been injured three 
weeks previous in a practice tilt with 
Deerfield Academy, and Snyder had 
been roughed up in practice two weeks 
ago. So here is hats off to two gnat 

Our win last Saturday, incidentally, 
should cause our rating in William- 
son's column to increase somewhat. 
Mr. Williamson writes a syndicated 
column for the Boston Globe, and 
each Sat. morning he publishes a list 
of rating! with a duplicate list of 
predictions on the forthcoming games. 
Before last Saturdays game we had 
been one percentage point below Am- 
herst College. I wonder how our rat 
iriK will stand this week in respect 
to the Lord Jeffs. 

With our most important game of 
the season coming up next week it 
might be wise to enlighten the stu- 
dent body on what kind of a perform- 
ance can be expected of the Jordan- 

To date Amherst has lost two out 
of its three games this season. The 
Jeffs gained a triumph over the Co- 
lumbia JV's and then lor,t, in rapid 
succession, to the Dartmouth JV's,

MSC, and will doubtless have a few 
tricks up its sleeve this Sat. So let 
us not be over optimistic about this 
Saturday's tilt with our neighbors on 
the other side of the town. 

With next weekend closing the foot- 
ball season, athletic enthusiasts will 
be turning their eyes towards the 
winter sports. Plans for intercollegi- 
ate basketball are already under way. 
However, sports such as swimming, 
indoor track, and hookey are still in 
abeyance due to lack of interest and 
lack of manpower. However, those in- 
terested in encouraging the reactiva- 
tion of the above mentioned sports 
should get together and first prove 
to Prof. Hicks that there is sufficient 
interest to even warrant considering 
their revival. 

That's about all for this week ex- 
cept for a few reminders: (a) that 
WC all attend the rally to be held this 
Friday evening in front of Stock- 
bridge, (b) that we attend the Am- 
herst-MSC game in full force, (c) and 
finally, that we give the Lord Jeffs

Teresita Osta 

Ostas, Terpsichorean And Pianist 
To Appear At Social Union Program 

Teresita and Emilio Osta will ap- 
pear here at Stockbridge Hall on 
Thursday, November 29th, at 8:00 
p.m., under the auspices of Social 

Born in California, descendants of 
the proud, unconquered Basques of 
Navarre, the Ostas, brother and sis- 
ter have been acclaimed on three con- 
tinents. Osta plays with the pas 
sionate love of a Latin. The pulsating 
rhythms of the Spanish speaking coun- 
tries as well as their tender folk tunes 
are presented with "The thin white 
flame of genius" by this master of 
the keys who is credited with having 
the largest repertoire of authentic 
Spanish music of any young pianis 
now before the public. This vast store 
of musical lore was acquired by visit- 
ing the countries, living with the 
people, eating their food, and study- 
ing their music first hand. When 
Teresita became interested in Mexi 

Girls Drop Stitches - - 
Listening To Lecture 

by Dorothy Gardner 
WSGA held a meeting Nov. 7, ir 
Stockbridge Hall. A test on the Hand 
book followed a lecture by Miss Eliza- 
beth Osborne on "The Impression We 
Leave" were the main themes of the 

Strangely enough, the meeting was 
attended by all the girls on campus. 
An interesting fact that was dis- 
covered was that the Orchestra and 
Quarterly Club now have the member- 
ship of a good half of the women 
students. There was definite proof of 
this when the President announced 
that members of these clubs could 
leave after a difficult Handbbok test 
had been taken. 

The rest of the audience, who show 
little school spirit by not joining these 
two afore mentioned clubs remained 
to enjoy hearing a lecture on how we 
can and what we more often look like. 
Miss Osborne's interesting subject 
it is rumored even had many girl* 
dropping stitches in their knittintr. 
and had even more girls in stitches. V 
was agreed that it was a good leefir' 
enjoyed by all. 

can dances. . .she used the same meth- 
od of study. . .she lived with the 
Indians, went to their festivals and 
learned the old, old dances that date 
back to the Aztec rule, before the 
coming of the Spaniards. It was in 
the State of Michoacan that she 
learned the "Sanduga" and during the 
same visit, her famous masked num- 
ber, "La Viejita" (The Old One.) 

Exotic and strange with the sub- 
tleties of an ancient people, Teresita 
shows us the beautiful ritual dances 
of the Inca Indians of Peru. She also 
dances the "Joropo" of Venezuela, the 
"Cueca" from Chile and "El Gato" 
native to Argentina. 

In addition to the Spanish dances 
familar to us, the Ostas include in 
their repertoire the "Flamenco" or 
gypsy dance and a variety of the folk 
dances from the different provinces. . 
one favorite is the quaint and glori- 
ously colorful peasant number repre- 
sentative of the ancient kingdom of 
A r agon. 

Lithe, sinuous and with a slender 
flowing grace, Teresita must be seen 
to be appreciated. Full of fire, with 
the irresistible coquetry that is he: 
heritage, her dances are not composed 
of steps and postures. . .the vivid 
pictures she creates merge one into 
another in an unbroken flow of beauty. 
Her emotion is profound yet con- 
trolled. Her gorgeous costumes are 
authentic in every colorful detail.

Mr. Simpson Lectures 
At Fine Arts Program 

This afternoon, Nov. 15, Mr. Wil- 
liam T. Simpson, of the English De- 
partment will give a lecture on part of 
his life. He is appearing under the 
auspices of the Fine Arts Committee. 
Mr. Simpson is an expert in dra- 
matic work. He attended the American 
Academy of Dramatic Art in New- 
York at the same time as Cecil B. 
de Mille, and has had an interesting 
career as an actor, stage manager, 
and director of theatricals. He was 
on the stage about the time of Rich- 
ard Mansfield. 

At one time, Mr. Simpson became 
a stock broker, but he soon went back 
to dramatic work. He came to Spring- 
field to direct the Theater Guild, and 
almost joined the staff at Springfield 
College. From there, he came to State. 
He now directs the Little Theater 
group in Hartford. During his lec- 
ture, Mr. Simpson will draw on his 
store cf reminiscences of the old days, 
famous actors and actresses, etc. 

Jane Wheatley. the well known M 
tress is a sister of Mr. Simpson. 

At the conclusion of the two week 
Music Association Drive, which end- 
ed this past weekend, approximately 
Ml percent of the student body has 
subscribed for membership — 425 seats 
have been sold. 

The drive has fallen far short of 
last year's goal when 90 per cent of 
the student body subscribed. The 
IfSC Concert Series was Initiated 
last year, on a non profu basis for 
the sole purpose of bringing out 
standing men and women from the 
musical world to our campus. It was 
hoped that it would become a well 
known and well-established tradition. 

Witold Malcuzynski who will ap- 
pear in the first concert on Tuesday, 
November 27 at 8:15 p.m., came to 
the United States two seasons ago 
after a triumphant tour of South 

Malcuzynski's success can be ex- 
plained in various ways. It is, of 
course, quite true that Malcuzynski's 
pianistic brilliance is at its zenith; 
it is equally true that the public has 
bean quick to recognize the great 
power of his personality, which per- 
meates his whole manner, and never 
fails to exercise strong suggestive 

But there is, of equal importance, 
his choice and selection of pro- 

He recognizes the necessity of fol- 
lowing the laws sanctified by the 
greatest names in the pianistic world 
and of submitting to a taste in musi'' 
that has remained unchanged. Luck- 
ily for him, the wishes of concert 
goen coincide with his own. What 
the public wishes to hear is, in the 
vast majority of cases, exactly what 
he wishes to play — the masterpieces 
of classical music. Luckily, too, the 
motto, "Noblesse oblige" still holds 
good as unconditionally in art as it 
used to do in all departments of life. 
It causes Malcuzynski to consider only 
the greatest masterpieces amongst 
compositions for the piano. A great 
artist who wishes to exhibit his art 
through the medium of interpreta- 
tion is forced to choose works which 
enable him to present "greatness in 
a great manner". Therefore much of 
Malcuzynski's repertoire will be found 
to be from the golden age of musical 
literature: Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, 
Schuman, Liszt, and Chopin, Chopin, 
and again Chopin . . . and the mod- 
erns too, The will of the majority can- 
not be ignored with impunity.

Armistice Day Service 
Commemorates Peace 

Armistice Day was observed with a 
short exercise outside Memorial Hall 
at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 9, com- 
memorating the soldiers killed in the 
last war. 

Rev Faston offered a prayer for 
the d<ad and Dean Machmer read the 
names of the members of the college 
who died in the last war followed by 
the poem "We Are The Dead" by 
Willi rd Watles, a member of the staff 
from {911*1914. The program ended 
with the sounding of taps and the 
I lowering of the flag. 

$7000 Collected For 
War Bond Drive 

At the end of the second week of 
the Victory Bond Drive only $7,000 
has been raised toward a goal of 
$.'{0,000. A more concentrated drive 
is now underway with Fdith Dover 
'48 and Ronald Thaw '47 as student 
chairmen. They have appointed one 
person in each of the dormitories 
and fraternities to take charge of 
sales of stamps and bonds. We expect 
to see a huge response to their cam- 
paign. Results will be graphed on a 
chart outside North College, a chart 
in the College Store showing the 
number of placques we have earned, 
and a clock below Butterfield will in- 
dicate the total student and total 
faculty sales. 

Competition for the Minute Man 
flag will be keen — based on the 
highest percent of students buying in 
the respective houses. The house with 
the highest per capita sales will 
choose the person to place the next 
plaque on a hospital bed. 

Students handling sales in dorms 
and sororities are: Florence Lawson, 
Lewis Hall; Jean Manning, Thatcher 
Hall; Veda Strazdas, Butterfield; 
Gloria Harrington, Theta; Frances 
White, Kappa; Daphne Cullinan, Chi 
O; Barbara Carmichael, Pi Phi; Polly 
Marcus, S.D.T.; Janet Parker, Sigma 
Kappa. Collectors in fraternity houses 
will be chosen soon.

A Lesson In Salesmanship At MSC 

The following is quoted from a letter written by Doctor Roberts, 
Faculty Chairman of the Victory Bond Drive: 

"During the Seventh War Loan the students at Mass. State es- 
tablished a goal of $3096 or the amount needed to equip 26 "G.I. 
Joe's." The final total from the sale of bonds and stamps was 
S72.'j2.10. or sufficient to equip 56 men. This money was loaned 
the government to provide equipment to enable our soldiers to fight 
effectively and win the war. To be sure, the war was won, but it 
left in its wake thousands of young men and women shattered in 
mind and body. 

"The need to help our men and women in the service to win the 
war was vital. The obligation to help those men and women who 
are now confined in hospital because of the war is also vital. It is 
estimated that it will cost, on the average, $3000 to rehabilitate a 
soldier. The aim of the Victory Loan Campaign is to provide 
funds with which to rehabilitate the wounded, bring the men and 
women home, muster them out, administer the G.I. Bill of Rights, 
and keep occupation troops in Europe and Japan. In order that the 
government may adequately meet these obligations, it is asking its 
citizens to lend their money. 

"The Victory Loan Campaign at M.S.C. is dedicated to the re- 
habilitation of 10 soldiers. On the basis of the results of 
the Seventh War Loan, the campus committee, composed =

hands of the clock towards the 100'; mark. Let's each do that 
much at least, and as much more as we can." 

We don't want to argue with Dr. Roberts, and maybe that kind 
of salesmanship is okay for the faculty, but we students are having 
none of that! We don't want facts and figures, and we're not 
impresssed with talk like "100% V We are much more interested 
in how our sorority's total compares with our rivals'. We want to 
hear about plans for The Big Bond Show; we'll even spend a quar- 
ter (or a dime) from our movie money to see the show. We don't 
even look at the thermometer (or is it a clock?--we dunno) that 
shows the progress of the drive. 

In short. Doc, we're much more interested in our own present 
than in our own and our country's future! 

dent if he happens to be in the way 
of the gasoline-driven demons. 

Last year a cadet was killed a -id a 
coed was seriously injured on North 
IMeasant Street. This was not the 
first time students had been maimed 
on the roads leading to the campus. 
I only wonder that there have not 
been more casualties for many of us 
have come dangerously close to de- 
struction on innumerable occasions. 

The luck of we off-campus students 
cannot keep on forever Sooner or 
later one of us will appear in the 
casualty column of the Collegian and 
much talk will suddenly appear about 
doing something about the situation. 

Must reform wait for the spilling 
of blood? Cannot something concrete 
be done now? 

Among the innovations that would 
radically help the situation would be 
the enforcement of a cotnpulsort/ 
speed limit of ticentif miles an ktrttr 
for till vehicles on roads lending to 
the campus. 

Must there be further b'oodshed 
before something is done about this?

Sugar Please 

To the Editor: 

Many of us who have just returned 
to college have felt the tightening of 
restriction, and the lack of the lux- 
ury of good food. When we returned 
to college, we expected that a few of 
these be returned to us. None of us 
complained when they took away our 
third bottle of milk. Most vets, unless 
they were stationed in hospitals, were 
not used to milk; most of us didn't 
complain about the food. There is no 
doubt that the food is delicious in 
comparison with some of the slop we 
have eaten. Rut what we do complain 
of is the lack of sugar in our coffee. 
Vets have lived on coffee alone. At 
breakfast, dinner, and supper we 
drank coffee as our only beverage. 
It is no wonder that we have become 
habitual drinkers. Rut here at college 
the coffee cannot be drunk — and we 
have powerful constitutions. There is 
they yelled "more meat for Draper" in I absolutely no sugar. We realize that

Mr. Atlee'* Visit 
Last Sunday Prime Minister Cle- 
ment Atlee of Great Britain arrived 
in Washington to confer with Presi- 
dent Truman concerning various prob- 
lems of mutual interest. On Tuesday 
he addressed a joint session of Con- 
gress and emphasized the common ob- 
jectives of the English speaking peo- 
ples of the world. Mr. Atlee has an- 
nounced that his main purpose in 
Washington is to discuss future plans 
for the atomic bomb; but the British 
Loan and the Problem of Palestine will 
no doubt be covered in the discussions. 

The Atomic Bomb 

Months have passed since the Jap- 
anese surrender, and inter-national 
organization has not progressed very- 
far. The atomic bomb continues to 
hang overhead as a sword of Dam- 
ocles and no one seems to know just 
what to do about it. Pres. Truman 
has announced that for the present the 
United States will keep the secret of 
the bomb's manufacture. Many others 
in this country, including many of our 
leading scientists have come out for 
international control of the bomb 
process. A group headed by Mathe- 
matician Einstein has maintained that 
the only body to control the bomb 
should be a strong international 
world government, much stronger than 
the present United Nations Organiza- 

Prime Minister Atlee is thought to 
be of the opinion that the bomb secret 
should be shared with Russia, as an 
aid to mutual trust and cooperation. 
Russia is justly suspicious of our keep- 
ing the process secret, especially since 
she is a member of the Security Coun- 
cil of the UNO. In reality there is 
little choice; in a few short months 
<>r years the atomic bomb secret will

^ Last week our colleague who writes 
Co-Editing stated in a rather sarcas- 
tic vein: "We see the ASTRP is agi- 
tating for more food. We haven't 
noticed that many look like vitamin- 
deficients, but the good people that 
feed them should remember that they 
are growing boys." 

Perhaps we are only "glowing 
boys" but that doesn't seem to prevent 
the Mass. State girls from robbing 
the cradle accepting our dates. Frank- 
ly we're inclined to believe that the 
average ATSSP is more mature look- 
ing than the average freshman here - 
excluding vets of course. 

It should be remembered that the 
ERC's as a rule have a great deal 
more exercise in the course of a day 
than the civilian students, and so 
work up a good healthy appetite. Yet 
the regular college students are able 
to supplement their meals by visits 
to the "C" store, which is restricted 
to the ASTRP's for most of the day. 

The reader may be interested to 
know that this reporter has learned 
that the writer of Co-Editing does not 
eat at Draper Hall. 

Private Richard Rooney and Ed- 
ward Shales, both of the 2.">th platoon, 
arrived in New York last Saturday, 
little dreaming of the good luck that 
awaited them. Sunday night by ex- 
treme good fortune, they obtained 
tickets to Phil Raker's network quiz 
show Take It or Leave It By another 
stroke of lady luck, Pvt. Rooney was 
chosen to be the program's first con- 
testant. A very few moments later a 
very happy and startled Rooney found 
himself $64.00 richer. Said Pvt. Roon- 
ey, "Gulp." Said Baker, "Sit down, 
soldier, you look faint." 

Suggestion of the week: A place in 
Draper Hall where those leaving the 
college by car on Saturday could 
indicate their destination and the 
number of seats available. Probably 
there are many who each week start 
OtH with partially empty cars who 
would be perfectly willing to take 
along a few passengers. What say?

Adelphia, Senior Men's Honorary Society, Revives, Elects 7 

Blalock, Delevoryas, Kirshen, Mann 
Richards, Stowe, Smith Chosen 

by Don Parker 

After nearly three years of 
I dormancy as an active organiza- 
Ition on Campus, the Adelphia So- 
Iciety, senior organization for 
men, has been revived. This so- 
ciety is comparable to the worn- 
ens' senior society, Isogon. The 
Ipresent senior class will remem- 
ber Adelphia as a working or- 
ganization, and since one of its 
Imembers has returned to Col- 
lege, the Society will again func- 
tion as a Senior Society for men. 
Normally, Adelphia elects in 
the spring of the year up to fif- 
teen members; eight honorary 
seniors; seven active juniors; 
Hid a Faculty or Alumni mem- 
ber who has been outstanding, 
lot only in business, but in his 
relationship and loyalty to Mass. 
State College. 

In the spring of 1943, seven 
nembers from the Class of 1944 

were elected, only to leave college 
to enter the service. They left 
the affairs of the Society in the 
hands of a Committee of three 
Adelphia Faculty members; Mr. 
Curry S. Hicks, Mr. George 
"Red" Emery, and Dr. V. P. 
Helming. This fall, Don Parker, 
first member of Adelphia to re- 
turn from the service, met with 
the above committee and elected 
Joseph Kunces, Class of 1945, to 
the Society. Joe's work on the 
campus as an undergraduate 
warranted him the distinction of 
being elected to Adelphia. At a 
second meeting of the committee 
seven members from the Class 
of 1946 were unanimously elected 
to serve this year. These men 
are: Jack Blalock, John Dele- 
voryas, Jason Kirshen, Chet 
Mann, Roger Richards, Bill 
Stowe, and Don Smith. 

"Adelphia to freshmen means 

smooth maroon jackets with 
gold-emblazoned pockets; to the 
sophomores, fellows always 
ready to help ; to juniors, a goal ; 
and to the seniors, recognition 
of those who have proven them- 
selves most worthy Statesmen." 
In normal times new members 
are recognized in a spring convo- 
cation by "tapping." However, 
this fall letters of recognition 
shall take the place of "tapping". 
The aims of the Society are: 
to suitably recognize men who 
have shown their ability as lead- 
ers in various student activities ; 
to perpetuate good feeling among 
the undergraduate body and the 
various organizations therein ; 
to keep the politics in college 
clean ; and to advance the Mass- 
achusetts State College in every 
branch of student life, and to 
work, and to exert itself, against 
anything which it considers det- 
rimental. "Promotion of good 
fellowship and the fostering of 

the highest ideals as M.S.C." has 
been its goal since its founding 
in 1915.

be common knowledge. Why not share 
the secret with Russia now and prove 
our r«>o(1 faith and possibly improve 
international cooperation? Russian 
foreign policy cannot be too bad if in 
Russian-dominated Hungary the con- 
servative Small Holders Party can win 
the election against the Communists. 
The British Loan 
A British Financial Commission has 
been in Washington for several weeks 
discussing terms of a proposed four 
billion dollar loan. Great Britain needs 
this money to firmly rebuild its un- 
stable economic structure. During the 
war imports were cut off and most of 
the manufacturing plants were con- 
verted to wartime production. Thus 
England must have several billion dol- 
lars to return to a peacetime economy 
with normal exports of manufactures. 
The United States has offered a 
four billion dollar loan at two per cent 
interest, but so far this has been re- 
jected. The British have been seeking 
an interest-free loan, but probably 
some compromise will be reached 
whereby tariff walls will be lowered 
to the mutual benefit of both powers. 
The Palestine Thorn 
Prime Minister Atlee will no doubt 
purpose a joint-trusteeship for Pal- 
estine. At present England has sole 
mandate over Palestine and is respon- 
sible for formation of policy and 
maintenance of order. Since the 
United States has been so vociferous 
in demanding a change of policy in 
Palestine, the Prime Minister is of 
the opinion that the United States 
should likewise join in the responsi- 
bility for whatever should happen 


There are about a hundred thousand 
displaced Jews in Europe, all clamor- 
ing for admittance to Palestine. But 
immigration to Palestine has been 
sharply restricted because of the bit- 
ter Arab opposition. The British have 
I, .en following a cautious policy of 
watchful waiting. But because of the 
strife and tension now evident in 
Palest in.'. ■ new policy is long over- 
due. The problem is very complex, 
and mo easy solution lias been found 
so far to the satisfaction of both Jews 
and Arabs.

Thr fickle finder () f fate worked 
to fine advantage last Saturday when 
the stouthearted men of Mass. State 
College were unable to overcome the 
gallant efforts (if the Lord Jeffs. Pre- 
vious to last Saturday's game the 
Statesmen had shown evidence that 
the forthcoming tilt with the Jordan- 
men might result in a long needed 
victory for MSC, thereby breaking 
Amherst's jinx on athletic supremacy. 
Unfortunately, however, such was not 
the case. 

In retrospect, the game was a com- 
edy of errors. Numerous and costly 
mistakes brought on by a combination 
of a slippery ball and overeagerness, 
on our part, were the cause of State's 
downfall last Saturday. From this 
corner, the fact that State gained a 
tie is neither worthy of commendation 
nor boastfulness Our score could have 
been tripled easily had it not been for 
a whole host of bad breaks. About 
the only satisfaction I got out of the 
game was the realization of the fact 
that the Amherst lads knew they had 
faced stiff opposition that afternoon. 

Well, that six-to-six ball game will 
mark the cessation of grid rivalries 

with Amherst College, and unquestion- 
ably, it would have been nice if the 
record! could show a State victory in 

the final encounter between the two 
schools. In searching out reasons for 
the finis m football between the two 
schools, it was interesting to note the 
different ideas various people had on 
the subject. From official sources, I 
learned that we were ceasing grid re- 
lationships mainly because we were 
interfering with Amherst's "Little 
Three" combination. However, that 
seems to a mighty poor reason. 

Personally, the truth of the matter 
in my mind, is that Amherst College 
refuses to play us mainly because 
they consider our grid teams vastly 
inferior to theirs and not worth play- 
ing so late in the season. Unquestion- 
ably, Amherst would be willing to 
play us at the start of the season, 
but this would put us at a bad dis- 
advantage, mainly because they have 
much more time in which to prepare 
a football team. Fortunately, we have 
not agreed to that. 

In explaining why our grid rival- 
ry has ended, don't misunderstand 
me; I think our relationships with the 
haughty Jeffs have been pleasant, but 
I feel that we can get along without 
them perhaps better than they with- 
out us, and if they consider us so in- 
ferior, it should be an added incen-

tive for us to see that we give them 
increased competition in future en- 

In saying goodbye to the football 
aeaaon, l would like to go on record 
in saying that I consider this first 
postwar year an initial step towards 
future supremacy for our athletic 
teams. If only certain people can be 
impressed with the fact that if State 
is ever to compete with the big uni- 
versities, she must possess outstand- 
ing athletic teams! Athletics can 
serve as a means of advertising our 
school not only "to the Legislature in 
Koston, but also to the country as a 

This year is a very good example of 
that fact. For the past two years we 
have been a dead school, as far as 
the Boston papers are concerned. How- 
ever, this year, due to the resump- 
tion of football activities and Mr. 
Derby's initiative, news about our 
training progress has appeared al- 
most daily in the Boston Globe. Let 
us hope that the higher ups realize 
the tremendous possibilities athletics 
have in advertising our cause before 
the taxpayers of the Commonwealth 
of Massachusetts, and, also that they 
do something about it. 

Now that football for this year is 
something of the past a little can be 
said about our coming basketball pro- 
spects. Coach Lorin "Red" Ball will 

Last Game Of Season For Statesmen 
Ends In 6-6 Tie With Amherst Jeffs 

With both teams floundering in the 

midst of several scoring opportunities. 
.Mass. State and Amherst ended their 
longtime grid-iron rivalry last Sat 
urday at l'ratt Field with a 8-8 
deadlock. It was a wide-open game 
from start to finish with fumbles 
galore altering the course of the game 
numerous times. Both teams had their 
share of scoring chances, but threw 
them away practically every time 
either by fumbling or by committing 
offenses which resulted in penalties. 
Only in the second period did both 
teams take good advantage of their 
scoring opportunities. Mass. State was 
the first to capitalize on one. Karly 
in the period the Statesmen drove 
down to the Amherst -l.'5-yanl line but 
lost the ball on a fumble on the 37. 
However, after a two-yard loss ami 

be in charge of this year's intercol- 
legiate team. Practice will not start 
until after the Thanksgiving recess. 
As yet, the schedule has not been 
completed, but prospects for a thir- 
teen-game schedule are bright. Let 
us all give this second athletic en- 
deavor as much support as we gave 
the first.

Amherst tallied later in the period 
Under practically the same circum-

incomplete passes and a futile line

slightly wide of the post.

it looked as though Lloyd Jordan*!

ered the ball on the M K.C. 81. Hut, 
helieve it or not, the Jcffmen recip-

local gridsten to regain possession 

of the ball. Those two fumbling plays 
exemplify the style of play which 
prevailed throughout the rest of tin- 

Karly in the third quarter, Kd 
Struzzieio, speedy State half hack, 
broke through the Amherst line and 
was on his way to a touchdown when 
the ball dipped out of his arms and 

was re co v e red by Amherst. If "Struts" 
had completed the run, he would have 
covered 87 yards and won the mm 
for M.S.C. 

Later he COmpenaated for this by 
intercepting a pass on State's Hi yard 
line and thus putting an end to an 
Amherst threat

the latter part of the thud period Am

recovered on the Jeff's 16. Three plays 
later State had only reached the 1 1 
and so Meet Snyder was brought in 
to attempt a field goal, which hit 
the crossbar.

fumbled again after regaining the 

ball and Mass. State recovered on

year existence of the social fraterni- 
ties at the undergraduate level in the 
U. of C. 

Its decision, announced yesterday by 
President Ernes! C. Col well, followed 

a two-year investigation by I faculty 
committee and a University admini- 
strative ruling hoard who had both 
recommended fraternities be ousted 
because they "tended to conflict" with 
the success of the new four-year col- 

The verdict was delivered by deans 
Of the University to the Interfrater- 
nity Alumni Council of the University 
of Chicago and the Interfraternity 
Council representing ten active fra- 
ternities of over 260 members. 

The action does not affect the con- 
tinuance of fraternities in The Divi- 
sions, nor are women's clubs sup- 
pressed in the College by the ruling, 
Colwell pointed out. 

Under the board's pronouncement, 
fraternities will not be permitted to 
pledge students after the winter quar- 
ter of 11*47, tho they may continue ac- 
tivities until that time. 

The University report said that the 
move was necessitated by reorgani- 
zation of the University's academic 
structure and that a reorganization of 
the extra-curricular activities neces- 
sarily must follow the same lines. The 
new house plan, initiated this Autumn, 
has been devised to unify the college 
as a distinct segment of the Univer- 
sity, the report said, and all student 
activities will be centered in the dor- 
mitories. Fraternities are forbidden 
from pledging students in the lower 
two years of the college because of 
many National fraternity rulings.

The audience sat enraptured during

made the concert one of the most 
enjoyable ever heard on this campus. 
After the concert, a reception WSS

Poland, was also present at the recep-

the college. 

Several proposals, some demanding 

immediate action, and some 

for future objectives, were compiled 

by this ( i, : tee 

first, President [taker hi ■ requ< 

ed that a small group of students 

representing the student bod) 

tify in behalf of MSC before the 

"Commission to Investigate Various 

Mailers Relating to Public Kduea 
Hon" which will hold open hearings 
in Boston in the near future. (This 
Commission was appointed recently 
by the Governor, and authorized by 
the Legislature, to study the question 

of a State University and other ed 
ucational matters.) 

Second, a meeting of Humid offi- 
cials, the Trustees, and the Veterans' 

Committee to determine a course of 
action was declared essential and 
should be discussed more fully. 

Slated for future action are these 
objectives: to secure provision for 
the living quarters of married veter- 
ans on campus, and to aid the Dfft 
ent effort by publicizing MSC to the 

people of Massachusetts. 
The Veterans' Committee realises 

it cannot do this important work e\ 
Cepl SI I part of the united student 
body. The four class presidents have 
been requested to hold class meet 
ings between this date and Friday, 
Dec, 7 in order that an equal num- 
ber of representative-, nun aid WOm 
en, from each class ina\ be elected 
U> serve on the Committee. These 

representatives would join the pn 

ent group when it meets at ti!<| 

chapel on Monday, Dec. 10 at ."» pm. 
Those members to date on the 

Committee are: P.arbara Robinson, 
Mitch Sambarski. Ray Fuller, Wen

All activities and accomplishments 
of the Committee will lie published

Adfb.Bg a serious note . . . 
In the i s I and even during this 
present year there has been agitation 
for a "better student government". 

However, there has been little OT 
no constructive criticism, only the re- 
frain "better student government". 1 
believe that if there is anything wronq 
with the present student government, 
the fault lies in the fact that the 
students '1<> not take advantage of it. 
No democratic government will func- 
tion properly unless those governed 

will let their representatives in tl'« 
Senate or the WSGA know their 
gripes, pet peeves, and criticisms. 
The Senate and WSGA have meetings 

regularly once a week, and would 
welcome any criticism or complaints 
brought to the attention of the res 

pective legislative bodies either per- 
sonally by any student or by a mem- 
ber of the WSGA council or senator 
Yes, let's have a "better student 
government"! But I believe that the 
need for improvement lies In the stu- 
dents themselves and their cooperation 
with the utilization of their govern-

The unofficial poll among the 
gentlemen on campus reveals, and we 
aren't surprised, that dungarees on 

campus do not add to the charm and 
beauty Of the coeds. Before the de- 
parture of the large percentage of 

male students in 'v\, dungarees were 
reserved for Saturday afternoons and 
private get-togethers. In fact they 
were de trop. Incidentally, the faculty 
evidently agree with the men on this 
subject So, perhaps its time for us 
to do a little post-war adjusting and 
rejuvenation. Besides the men nee I 
those lonjjr tailed shirts hack. They 
are scarcer than SUgar. 

We have heard rumbling and rever- 
herations on the subject of a Military 
Ball. We think that it would be a Rood 
chance for the vets to give the moths 
and their uniforms a gala evening. 
Not to mention what it would do for 
the coeds. 

The War Bond Show is in full 
rehearsal. This is probably the last 
War Bond Drive we will see (we 
hope), so lets pack to capacity. Come 
and see what is in THE SUITCASE. 
And don't arrive sin dinaro — for

If the freshmen win ajrain, we'll 
begin to think it's just an encourage- 
ment process or something. Anyway 
the Interclass Play Contest full of 
budding I.unts and Fontaines is worth 
your honorary presence. Maybe it's 
because the upper-classmen spend 
so much time in the library studying.

To accurately describe the Thanks 
jrivinu; meal, served to the A.S T.P.I'.'s 

at Draper Hall, it would be necessary 

to borrow adjectives from those mas- 
ters of the superlative, the Barnum 
ami Bailey press agents. However, it 
may be far better to stav on a more 
homespun plane when Speaking of 
Thanksgiving for. after all. that is 
one of those special times of the year 
when our thoughts turn to home ami 
family and friends. 

For those who had to stay here 
last Thursday, the dinner served at 

Draper provided compensation in par* 
for their inability to be at home. The 
sitrht of the tables laden with fruits, 
nuts, anil candy, provided pleasant 
surprise which was soon changed to 

delight when the fellows found their 
i rays loaded with a luscious, well- 
planned, and abundant meal. The work 
which the preparation of the dinner 
entailed was well-realized, and one 
ASTRP probably expressed the senti 
ments of all when he said "I don't 
think that those who made that meal 
possible will ever know how much we 
appreciate it". 

Chalk up another celebrity for the 
2.">th. This time it's Pvt. Bob Scrim- 
geour (better known as Blub Blubi 
who while Visiting Hartford with Pvt. 
"Doe"Ribby won a "sinjr for your sup- 
per" contest sponsored by Tommy 
Tucker and his famous band, which is 
at present playing in that city. Over- 
whelmed by the Sterling qualities of 
Pvt. Scrimgeour's voice the audience 
registered their approval by tumul- 
tuous applause which captured the 
prize for him. 

Limping, hobbling, walkinK slow. 
the Astraps wend their merry way. 

What is wrong , oh don't you know? 
The P.T. tests were yesterday. 

Today is I) day for the second cam- 
pany and we hope the casualties will 
not be too high For Thursday, Fri- 
day, and Saturday are the days on 
which the much-dreaded term exams 
will be Riven. The prospects of our 
between-term vacation, which starts 
Saturday, is about the only bright ray 
shininj? through the gloom. 

And that, readers, is thirty in an- 
other edition of Y'ou're Well Told. 

Labor Dissension 

Since Y-.l Day the strife and dis- 
sension between labor and big busi- 
ness has been very evident. The end 

of the war saw a decrease in number 

of working hours, with a correspond- 
ing lessening of the weekly pay cheek. 
Labor has argued that the cost of 
living has not decreased since the 
end of hostilities; so, in general, they 

have been demanding increases i" 

wages up to thirty per cent. 

The large industrial companies 
have replied thai they cannot at pres- 
ent increase wages without increas- 
ing prices of their COnBU ner goods. 
But according to present price con- 
trol regulations, prices cannot he 
raised t" any considerable degree. So, 
many occasion-;, a deadlock has 

been reached between labor and big 

The present chaos has its brighter 
■a pacts, too. The strikes have been 
conducted with good lense and plan- 
ning; and so far we have seen almost 
no rioting and other forms of mob 

\ iolence. 

The (ieneral Motors Strike 

The Genera] Motors strike is go- 
ing into its second week and so far 
there seems to be no basis for an early 
settlement The first great strike of 
the reconversion period is part of the 
planned campaign of the United 
Automobile Workers to increase peace- 
time wages in all of the automobile 
producing factories. The Union has 
decided on a strategy of "divide and 
conquer", by which they hope to suc- 
cessively fight the great industrial 
combines such as Ford, General Mo 
tors, ami Chrysler. Thus they strike 
at only one company at a time. The 
company, anxious to produce auto 
mobiles as fast as possihlc in a very 
competitive market, would tend to 
come to terms with the union as soon 
as it could. 

Put in the first real test, Oeneral 
Motors has grown stubborn and baa 
refused to yield to pressure.

MHIIIHiniUHIMnm ' imihhiih 

In response to my column last week 
on athletics at MSC, and their im- 
portance to our future dreams of I 
University. 1 received a note from 
George H. Allen "M>, Manager of the 
Cooperative Analysis of Broadcastinf 
in New York. It reads as follows: 
••Congratulations for publishing the 
kind of straight thinking about Stat- 
athletic teams I've believed in for 
many years. Good athletic teams will 
hasten State's growth to adulthood 
in the eyes of Eastern Mass. and 
particularly the Legislature, by 10 
years. Let's grow up." 

Mr. Allen's note is extremely 
heartening in that it is gratifying 
to know that there is still an active 
alumnus interested enough in State's 
problems to understand the impor- 
tance of athletics. Unquestionably- 
State needs more men of vision like 
Mr. Allen who, through levelheaded 
thinking are able to visualize the 
importance athletics can play in 1 
establishment of a University. 

However, mere talking will not do 
the trick. On the contrary, only ac- 
tion on the part of the alumni, the 
students, and those connected, either 
directly or indirectly, with the col- 
lege will ever bring about our fond- 
est hopes of making MSC a Univer- 
sity. I think that possibly Mr. ABeBl 
has made a step in the right direction 
by voicing an opinion that has long] 
been dormant. 

I invite all subscribers of the C"l- 
legian to send in their opinions on the 
athletic situation here at State - 
that a few of the many problems can) 
be aired. 

In addition, I will devote a portion 
of each week's column either to let- 
ters received or just plain "down to 
earth" discussion on the ways an^ 
means of bettering the athletic situa- 
tion here at MSC.

of demand caused by war.

this trend will continue for many

more than ever before in history. 

war has reduced the production 

of these and there is bound to be 

ate and public pressure to urge 

ir training and to provide adequate 

facilities for it. 

This increase in demand for college 
"hication is already being realized 
at Massachusetts State College and 
M have been made to meet it as 
effectively as possible. A brief sum- 
ary of most important needs is de- 
died on the next page. 
'Is of Massachusetts State Collei/e 
to Meet Increasing Student 
P.efore the war, student enrollment 

reached a peak of 1800 which taxed 
the facilities of the college to th< 
limit. That this figure will be exceede I 
in the near future is obvious if needed 
facilities are provided. There are four 
principal needs which must be met if 
the college is to fulfill its responsibil- 
ity to the people of the State. These 
are summarized as follows: 

1. Funds for /.'/ new teaching posi- 
tions. These are necessary if we are to 
he prepared to teach the additional 
students expected to enroll in the 
1946*47 academic year. The Budget 
of the Board of Trustees, as submit- 
ted, includes provisions for these 

2. A neie I'htisics Laboratory, The 
present building is a disgrace, a fire- 
trap, and wholly inadequate. It rep- 
resents a bottleneck in the instruc- 
tion program. The item is included 
in the Trustee Budget. 
:;. Am adequate En gineerin g linild- 
imj. The division of Engineering is 
housed in a small one-story building 
which is entirely inadequate. The de- 
mand for this training in the post- 
war period will probably exceed that 
for training in any other field and 
this State College must have an En- 
gineering Building and Staff if it is 
to he able in any measure to meet this 
demand. This item is included in the 
Trustee Budget. 

4. An adequate salary seals tor the 
faculty of the State College that it 
can attract and hold teachers of merit 
in competition with similar institu- 
tions whose salary scales at present 
are generally much higher. 

The first three items described 
above are included in the official 
budget of the college as already sub- 
mitted for the consideration of the 
Budget Commissioner; His Excellency, 
the governor; and the Legislature. 
The fourth item would be provided 
by favorable action on the Griffen- 
hagen Report. 

The Citizens of the Commonwealth 
will expect Massachusetts State Col- 
lege to carry its share of the load of 
higher education in this post-war pe- 

riod. If the facilities needed are not 
provided, many veterans and othe 

worthy young people will have to be 
turned away. 

That is the problem. It can be 
solved through the interest and sup- 
port of all Massachusetts citizens who 
wish to see the opportunity of higher 
education extended to all worthy 
young people This was compiled and 
printed by Associate Alumni, MS*'.

hourly increase of thirty per cent,

woik week of forty hours. This, says 
the union, would bring up wanes to 
the peak wartime forty-eight hour

CM can pay the Increase without 
raising consumer prices, and still 
accomplish an even greater profit 
than has been possible in former 


CM has offered to increase wag) 
tin per cent and to lengthen the work 
week to forty-five hours. The com- 
pany has maintained that it can go 
no furt her and still make a profit on 
the new cars. The union has suggest- 
ed that the company open its hooks

wage increase would not be possible. 

But this General Motors has absolute- 
ly refused to do, 

The Basic Problem 

The General Motors situation has 
focused even greater attention on t he 
basic question of what to do about 
strikes. Three weeks ago, Pre ident 
Truman called a Labor Management 
conference of thirty six delegates to 
formulate policies for lasting indus- 
trial peace. Because of the vast indi- 
vidual differences, little has been ac- 
complished and the conference has 
all but bogged down. Loth labor and 
business fear compulsory arbitration, 
for it would deprive the unions of t he 
sacred strike privilege, and the com- 
panies might be forced to open their 
hooks to arbrit rators. Closed books 
are as sacred to the industrialists as 
the strike is to the unions. 

Meanwhile, the only concrete sug- 
gestions Congress has seen fit to of- 
fer are some more of the perennial 
anti-labor bills, which would restrict 
union activities. The problem is too 
explosive for this sort of a solution. 

.No doubt the present state of af- 
fairs will clear up with the passage 
of time. But for a satisfactory solu- 
tion to the basic problems, compro- 
mises will be necessary from both 
labor and big business.

Ratio Favors Girls 
For Dance Dates 

by Shirley Spring 
And then there's always the Ratio 
to worry about. In pre- fresh man days 
I remember we all went to a i"a so 
the upperclass women could estimate 
OUT capacity for Green, and one bold 
girl asked, "I>o you have a lot of 


••Well," answered the hostess, "the

"Of course, sometimes you get the

nipped another upperclasswomai:. 

\t!'! that's how Freshmen become 


Time was when this campus was a 

virile place. Only the most daring 

daughters of Bay State came to 

IMAC— to be socially ostracised by the 

■men. In any case, the gals finally 

bnade their pr e se n ce felt in such 

• •' influences SI formats, 

iroms, and sororities. 

The late 1980*1 and 80*1 will be

fai as the Ratio was concerned. Of 

course t he re were a few cads on eam- 

trho sought the sophistication of 

eighboring colleges In place of that 

windblown look; and there were those 

-tionn-willed men who were true to 

the girl back home. The girls were

By the time the class of '4fi arrived 
tin upperclass woman was beginning 
to show her age. That year with the 
•xodttl of the Horse and Rider the 
Ratio did a flip-flop. If the air corps 
riadnt arrived to take over, the old 
Fashioned lipstick would have dis- 
ippeared completely in 1944. The loss 
jr>f Joe College was no small blow to 
Suzy Coed, but she did her best to 
make the fly-by-night guests at MSC 
feel at home. 

Last year however all morale hit 
the dirt as dungaree sales soared. 
Statesmen who stuck by their women 
through the crisis were generous in 
sharing the wealth. The Ratio was 
to 1 against the coeds.

night, Dec. 8, at the Drill Hall from

Bond Show 

by Fran Johnston 
The rafters in Stockhndge Hall 
rang with the cheers of a highly en 
thusiastic audience at the War Bond 

Variety Show last evening, bringing 

8th War Bond Loan to g successful 
and climatic close. Dave Hoehnke, 
Master Of Ceremonies, presented the 
various acts with that knowing gleam 
in his eye, building up terrific sus- 
pense in his patrons. Opening with a 
chorus number by "Red" Stewart's 

Roekettea (well on their wa) to Broad 

was fame I, the spell was cast, and 
Hilda Scheinberg came on to present 

a take off on Browning's "Home 

Thoughts from Abroad" With sidelines 
by .lasinski and C/.aja. These come 

dians, ".'a/z" and Csaja, then stole 

the show for the next few minutes 
with an act such as only Statesmen 
could devise and only Campus Van 
etiea would sponsor. Their "suitcase 
act" will no down in histoi \ second 
only to Murray Casper's and John 
Hick's skit on violets. After several 
selections by the Statettes, including 
"Print a Kiss" and "In the Still of the 
Night" and college songs by the 
Statesmen, the show swung into the 

second act with Dot Morton singing 
•'Memphis Bluea" accompanied by 

Rae Bouchard. Ruthie Steele's plea 

in "I Wanna Oet Married" had every 
eligible male in the house only too 

ready and willing to make her dreams 

come true. Hut Joe Kharibian kept 
them glued to their seats with his 
mind- reading act, usim.- OU1 noble 

Master of Ceremonies as his stooge.

The curtain parted to reveal a

hot boogie-woogie, setting the stage 

for Julian Malkiel's entrance singing,

braceable You" and Dave Hoehnke 
succumbed wailing the "Hong-Kong

ing as she flitted thru a Cypsy dance 
while Jazz, the bartender, kept the 
spirits flowing.

However, the Student Senate is by 
no stretch of the imagination repre- 
sentative of the undergraduates. It is 
elected by the men students from the 
men students. By power of an illusive 
constitution the Senate can appoint 
weekend and dance committees, super- 
vise class elections, and formulate 
undergraduate policy. 

During the war years, the Senate

Race fur Manchuria 

The undeclared Chinese Civil Wa 
continues at its same, slow pace of 
the past few weeks. The war is no- 
one of battles, but of movement. Botl 
the Yenan Communists and th< 
Chuntfkini>; Nationalists have as thei 
objective the occupation of Manchuria 
Since Manchuria is a highly de 
veloped industrial area, both Yenan 
and Chunj;kirin" are racing to occup 
the province. If the Nationalists win 
the race, then the Communists will b 
caught in a pincers. But if the Yenan 
troops take over Manchuria, then the 
resources of the two rival govern' 
ments would be more evenly divided. 
That mitfht mean a lonjr and Mood 
civil war. 

Russian Action 
The Russians, who now occupy Mai 
churia, have not been following a 
consistent policy. On several occasioi 
they have forbidden Nationalist troop- 
to land at specified Manchuria?) sea 
ports. On other occasions, the Ifu- 
sians have retreated from Manchuriai 
towns, only to have the Yenan fore 
march in and take over. 

But after a protest from the Chung- 
king government, Russia has agreed 
to delay its withdrawal from Man 
churia until Nationalist troops can 1"

It should be remembered that aft. 
Potsdam, Russia signed a treaty wit 
the Chungking Nationalists recogniz- 
ing the Kuomintang as the offlcia 
government of China. 

Halted States Policy 
American forces had as their aim 
! in China the disarming of the Japa- 
nese and the maintenance of order t

Undergraduates And MSC 

Although the present concern of many students over expan- 
sion and improvement of Massachusetts Stale College is new to 
most of this college generation, we should be reminded that this 
is not the first time projects have been undertaken with a view to 
improving the quantity and quality of instruction at this college. 

The alumni body, the Trustees, and the students of previous gen- 
erations were instrumental in the growth of MAC to MSC. with 
many intervening steps, and many steps since then towards fur- 
ther development. That some of us are inclined to be impatient is 
natural, for we tend to think in terms of four-year units. But we 
may be sure that the Trustees and Associated Alumni are now. as 
before, working for the best interests of the college, and that they 
are moving with all possible speed to commensurate with those

Tomorrow will he the fourth anni- 
versary of a day, that, in the words 
of our late President, shall live in 
infamy forever. Four years have 
passed since that fateful Sunday, 
when a shocked nation was awakened 
to find itself fighting for its very 
existence. How swiftly tin- sands of 
time have run; how crammed with 
human tragedy 
been their path 

POT some, the war which started 
four years ago is over. For others, 
it will never end. They are the un- 
counted casualties of war, the mothers 
and fathers, the sweethearts, wives, 
and children of those who lie beneath 
the endless crosses that stretch across 
the far reaches of the earth. There 
are far too many empty places in 
American homes today. There are far 
too many babies who will never be 
born. And there are few too many 
broken hearts that cannot be mended. 
And yet it has come to pass, and then- 
is nothing we can do but solemnly re- 
flect, and hope and pray that some- 
thing, some bit of good will come out 
of it all. 

Throughout the war "Remember 
Pearl Harbor" was a valuable catch- 
phrase, used to whip up the patriotism 
of the people, although the enthusiasm 
it had once provoked, is diminishing 
somewhat. Yet Pearl Harbor still

Steve Hamilton Work I 
Exhibited In Mem Hall 

The new art exhibit now being dis- i 
plsyed in Memorial Hall is the work 
of Steve Hamilton, a former states-) 
man, of the class of '81, Mr. Hamil- | 
ton left State before the completion j 
,,f his four years for reasons of 
health. As an avocation, he turned to 
painting and SI his work became bet- 
ter and better, he found a market for 
his water color paintings. 

After his initial success with his 
water colors, he began to do transpar- 
ent-oil painting, This new method en- 
abled him to Capture B great deal of 
,i people admire In New England— 
the sky, cloud formations, hills, moun- 
ts, lakes, rocks, trees, the snow. 
Mr. Hamilton's way of capturing the 
scenic beauty of New Kngland result- 
• d in much local popularity. His work 
strikes a responsive note in New Eng- 
enders; and for the student body of 
State, he paints pictures reminiscent 
of their undergraduate days. 

At various times, Mr. Hamilton 
has worked for the college Forestry 
department. He compiled paintings 
nf typical specimens of trees; and 
then did some similar work for the 
Vegetable Gardening department. At 
the time when the 58th CTD was sta- 
tioned here, he taught certain phases 
of geography, and airplane recogni- 

Before the war, Mr. Hamilton took 
I trip to Labrador to do some agricul- 
tural work. While he was there, he 
found time to make paintings of Lab- 
rador scenes. He found in Labrador 
the same sort of subject which de- 
lighted him in New Kngland. 

He has used his Labrador and New 
Kngland scenes for his greeting cards 
which he paints for White and Wy 
coff Company. Some of the originals 
of these cards are hung in this ex-

World At A Glance 

Continued from page 2 
while yet striving to effect some sem- 
blance of unification between the ri- 
val governments. Thus U.S. ships and 
j, lanes have been used to transport 
Nationalist troops to Manchuria. Rut 
in the armed clashes between Nation- 
alists and Reds, the U.S. troops, com- 
manded by Gen. Wedemeyer, have 

remained strictly neutral 

Hurley's Rest una) ion 
Last week saw evidence that th« 

cautious United States policy was not 
satisfactory to at least one high diplo- 
mat. Gen. Patrick Hurley, American 

ambassador to China, resigned his 
post and immediately proceeded to 
bast the State Department policy. 

President Truman accepted the resii. 
nation very coldly and appointed Gen- 
eral of the Army George Mai. -.hall, 
ex-Chief of Staff, as the new euvov 
to Chungking. 

Gen. Hurley has been known as an 
exponent of all-out support for the 
Chungking Government During the 
war, Gen. Hurley's ideas were shared 
by most of our military. For then 
defeat of Japan was our primary ob- 
jective, and it was easier to send arms 
and ammunition to Chungking than 
to distant Yenan. 

Future Policy 

It seems very likely that Gen. Hur 
ie\ represents an extreme point of 
view. The political strength of the 

Yenan Communist! ii too potent for 

any power politics on the part of the 

United states. No doubt Chungking 
represents the legal government of 
china. But, nevertheless, who would 

be willing to assume responsibility foi 
involving 100,000 American troops In 

a bloody civil war to crush the Yenan

The only solution to these complex 

political differences has been and 

will continue to be COmpremt <

World Student Congress Held 

The first post war World Students 
Congress Attended by representative! 

from United Nations and neutral 
count lies met in Prague, Czecho- 
slovakia from Novemher 17-2.". Under 
discussion was a draft constitution 
for a new International Federation of 
Students Formal opening ceremonies 
scheduled for the sixth anniversary 
of Novemher 17, 1939 when Czecho- 
slavak students were massacred by 
the Nazis — International Students 
Day. Preliminary discussions were 
held in London on Novemher 10 ami 

The conference, sponsored by (he 
National Union of Czechoslovak Stu 
dents and the Czechoslovak govern- 
ment, was organised in cooperation 
with the national Union of Students 
of England and Wales. Invitations 
were sent to all democratic student 

organisations, and sboat 200 dele 

gates were present. This includes a 
group of six Americans, representing 
the Student Divisions of the YMCA 
and YWCA, The United States Stu 
dent Assembly, The American Youth 
for Democracy, American Unitarian 
Youth, and the Southern Negro Youth 


During the conference Dr. Edward 
Benes, President of the Czechoslovak 
Republic, addressed the group, and 
on November 18 messages were broad- 
cast from Prime Minister Atlee, 
President Truman, and Marsha! 
Stalin. Charles University in Prague 
awarded an honorary doctor's de- 
cree to Mrs. Franklin Koosevelt. 

In general, present aims for the 
federation — as worked out by a com- 
mittee of national student organisa- 
tion* — are that it will: 

(1) act as the r epresen tative inter- 
national student organisation; 

(2) provide means of encouraging 
cooperation between democratic na- 
tional organisations of students; 

(8) promote friendship between 
students of differenl countries; and 

(4) promote the well being, and 
improve the educational standards of 
all students in ord( We them 

to play a full part as democratic

In order to cany out these aims, it 
is proposed that the new fede ratio 
will "reprea nt student opinion a 

defined by the Council of toe Fede ;■ 
tion, organise international studeu' 
conferences, distribute information on 
student interests in all countries, 
Organise international itudent travel 
and promote international student ex 
change, and organize international 
student sport activities." These an 
the objects considered at Prague. 

Also on the conference agenda W8J 
discussion of the federation's relation 
ship to other groups with allied 
aims particularly to the Educa- 
tional and Cultural Organisation of 
the United Nations. 

The idea of a new and effectivi 
world federation for students reaches 
haek into the early years of Wo 

War II. During this period, Great 
Britain served as a refuge for stu 

dents and teachers, and as a clearing 
house of ideas from the occupied and 
fighting countries of Europe. It was, 
therefore, the logical place for inter- 
national student action to germinate. 
In March, 1945, an Informal group 
of delegates from national students 
organization met in London to decide 
whether to revive the moribund Inter- 
national Students Assembly, or to cre- 
ate a new body to take its place. They 
chose to work towards a new inter- 
national federation of students, and 
in August, 1946, a Committee of Se- 
ven Nationalities (Canada, China, 
France, Great Britain, the U.S.A., the 
I.S.S.U., and Yugoslavia) prepared a 
draft constitution for the new per 
manent organization. This was sub- 
mitted to the I. on. Ion student's meet- 
ing, and to the World Students Con-

which will feature pamphlets and pari" 

odicals in connection with interfaith 
work and news. This innovation is be- 
ing set up as a result of a recent 
meeting of Mr. Hasil Wood and some 
interested students. All literature on 
the table will meet with the approval 
of the United Religious Council, and

In spite of what the participants

State besides being a member of the

Jim Falvey is well-versed in the ait 
of physical training through his ex- 
perience in basketball and a coaching 
course that has given him a good deal 
of knowledge of athletics and the 
physical training involved. 

At present the boys taking the 

course have calisthenics, practice on 
the obstacle course, work with log! 
two nights a week, and play basket- 
ball one night. Earlier in the autumn 
there were calisthenics and practice 
on the obstacle course, with touch 
football instead of basketball. This 
program not only gives the men the 
necessary exercise and endurance, but 
also nives them a chance to gain 
whatever knowledge of athletics they 

may lack. 

Resides this regular program, the 

boys have a special physical fitness 

rating test, which they are required to 

pass before graduation. This test con- 
sists of running •''.<>(» yards, swimming 
LOO yards, and doing chin-ups and sit

Lecture By Dykstra 
On Realm Of The Wild 

Captain Walter Dykstra of the \ . 
S Fish and Wildlife Service spoke 
and presented a kodachroine sound 
film on the "Realm u( the Wild" to 
an audience of 25 students and fac 
ulty at French Hall recently, ('apt. 
Dykstra discussed the peculiarities 
of nature in the Hawaiian and Gil- 
bert Islands and emphasized the pioli 

lems in the management of animals 

Striking film shots of the natural 
camouflage of the wild snimali high 

lighted the show. Some sheep and the 
Ptarmigeil which i> dark in summer 
and snow white in winter are exam 
pies of this phenomenon. The seminar 
was the first of three sponsored by 
the conservation class.

Iii the past I have neither praised 

athletics at State nor, as the savin.' 
goes, given them a "break". Therefore, 
this week, 1 would like to show |uit 
how far athletics have progressed 
since my freshman year. 

I entered in '48, alone; with se\ei:ty 

teenageri who were not yet ripe for 

military service. The freshmen were 
"ruling the roost" in as much as the) 
comprised three-quarters of tin- total 

male enrollment; and, at first, they 
were ipiite eager to play football, 
whether it be of the intercollegiate 
variety or not. However, there was a 
little matter of 750 Pre flight cadets 
that interfered with aspirations of 
that type. As the case was, all avail 
able activities were being tied up by 
the "kaydets" (including the women, 

but that's something else again), and 

very little was left for the student

from capital and labor.

So, the football season went by with- 
out our physical support, and Io and 
behold basketball came upon U s with 
I rush This time the freshmen were 
not to be outdone, and, as a result, 
bouse teams were formed under the 
guidance of prof. Briars. This kept 

their minds off all the fun they were 
mining by being born four years too 
late, and it provided them with an 
outlet for their pent-up energies. 

Well, the sounds of the dribbling 
of a basketball and the cries of "Pass 
the ball to nu'" departed an I the 
sounds of horsehide airainst wood 
were in the none Ion distant future. 

Yes, the baseball season provided a 

Surprise, for the hoys were ahle to 
form an informal team that would 
eventually have a short three frame 
schedule. Although the team wasn't 
up to winning collefrtste standards, 

it did, nevertheless, have a successful 
season winning two out of its three 
frames under the able guidance of 
Coach Rriirgs. 

That ended athletics for the 'i:; '1 I 
season, and it also ended, for the 
time being, the college careers of most 
of the freshman class. 

The following year brought cries of 

intercollegiate athletics but, onfortun 
ately, this could not be realised for 

the school still possessed an army pro 

cram. And so, after vigorous entreaty 
the boys were able to engage in i nt i a 
mural "six man" football. This cleav- 
age gradually eased up the athletic 

situation and, as the season pro- 
gressed, thi' basketball and football 

teams were able to engage in informal 

contests with various High Schools 
and Academies. 

That about concludes my summary 
of athletics during the war years, 

except to say that progress has def- 
initely been made since the Fall of 
'43 ami will continue to he made (I

work in team cooperation. However, 
the Hall coached srpiad was at a 

distinct disadvantage having to face 

a team that has practice.) for almost 
a month. For this reason nothing much 
can b<- said about the informal tilt. 
At present, the "A" squad is composed 

of Stanne, Fee, Jasinski, Lansing, 

Meagher, Stambrowski, and Czaja. 
That's about all for this week.

World At A Glance 

The first peace-time Christmas in 

I six years is approaching. The holiday 

spirit fills the air, and we are all 

[inspired with generous thought! and 

altruism. "Peace on earth, good will 

men". Would that the ancient 

prophecy were true. Someday men of 

idwill will create peace oil earth: 

I hut we have not seen that in the Veai 


The world is pretty chaotic this 
I lecember. Strife and di. • an 

I. idetri from downtown Detroit to the 

trior of Iran. The small people! of 

Ithe world have grown impatient of 

and unwary of the slow procx 

• calm arbitration. The peasants of 

LJava, the .lews and Arabs of Palestine 

the nativei of Indo-China, the na- 

alists of India, and the CommU- 

Inists of China are growii g inereas 

ly restless. 

We do not condone violence; 
[\,, we believe that all the above arc 

•mpletcly justified in their demands. 
|llut that is beside the main point 

ic larger issue is of greater signifi- 

■< and looms more loftv in the 

bistanl base 

Last December there was unanimity 
Lmong all the United Nations of the 

World. We successfully weathered the 
(unexpected Hattle of the Belgian 
ittlge; our combined war effort was 
too mighty for any freakish offensive 
|to impede the inevitable triumph. Dis- 
sension in the world last December 
was at a minimum; all our labors 
[were centered on the common iroal — 

lefeat of Germany and Japan. We had 

:. higher spirit to inspire us and lead 
Bl victory over an alien philosophy. 
Rut with the coming of peace in 
-August, the unification of war evapo- 
rated into atomic vapor. 

All would have been well had there 
been ideals of peace ready to jump 
in and be substituted for the effective 
ideals of war. But - alas — we saw 
the revival of power politics, spheres 
of influence, and violence as an in- 
strument of national policy. 

December is the month of Christ- 
mas. It is a healthy time of year — 
•me of our most hardened criminals 
often contribute to funds for the 
eedy; there are turkey dinners i" 
l rectional institutions; we all have 
leelings of contentment and satisfac- 
- life is worth living. 
Unfortunately, Christmas comes boi 
W I year. Would that the genuine 
I it of Christmas altruism could be 
tended over the twelve months and 
|' • fifty-two weeks of the year. 

For if the Golden Rule became the 

philosophy of all two billion 

tals, then we would see a true

motivating force for a lasting world 
peace. The fact Is, our wariest world 

is far from being tranquil. W« need 
a universal ideal. 

The cynics among us and you 

might include the writer of this col- 
umn in that category will probably 

scoff at these ideas and dismiss every- 
thing with a shrug and a frown. 
"Mere flowery prose", they will sa\ j 
'•just has to fill up a column". 

We could have written about other 
topics this week the Saturday meet 

ing of the Big Three in Moscow; the 

status of the automobile strike; or 

the agreement on a British loan for 
four and a half billion dollars 

But we decided on this "flowei '• 
prose" because Christmas is a very 

suggestive time of year. The "rappoi I " 
is rood, as the psychologists would 
say. Most of us achieve noble char- 
acter at Christmas-time. It logically 

follows that December Is the lime of 
year to suggest that we carry this 
behavior over Into the other months 

of the year. 

"But what has this to do with US 
individually'."' the persistent scoffer 
may cry. 

World peace >>r world war is merely 
the cumulative effect of all of our 
social relationships. The chain is as 
Strong ai its weakest link. Any person 
who is unkind, disagreeable as an 
individual, and autocratic in the 
human environment is a potential 
maker of wars. 

There are too many important char- 
acters bullying their lesser brothers. 
Since prominence and success in life 
is often due to the arbitrary whims 
of fate our superiors ought to reflect 
on their accidental achievements. They 
should be polite, courteous, and toler- 

In our college community, this 
means a cordial and friendly environ- 
ment: understanding be twee n students 
and professors; sym p atheti c treatment 
in the infirmary; courtesy in tin- 
Dean's Office; less attention to rules 
and more attention to individual re- 

These situations are additive; and 
without caution, may cause tension 
and resentment. Not a very tranquil 
state of affairs. 

Thus, at this Christmas season, let 
jus reflect of the worthiness of under- 

I standing, courtesy, tolerance, and 
'sympathy. If everyone of us indi- 

vidually snd collectively follow the 

Golden Rule which is the basic- 
tenet of almost all religions world 
i peace will be well 01 its ay to actu-

Victory Varieties 

This is the first opportunity the Collegian has had to actually 
review the "Victory Varieties" of a week ago yesterday. Bouquets 
of orchids to Hal Leen, Julie Malkiel, and their cast. We single out 
also, performers Jasinski and Czaja, who were outstandingly no- 
ticeable. Not since Campus Varieties of 1942-3 have any two cap- 
tured an MSC audience as did they. 

Of Howie Gadbois, nothing need be said. He was all we had 
heard, and more. It was his "lip" that lent that touch of perfection 
to the "Opium Den" scene. 

Of that scene itself, it has been said that nothing its equal has 
appeared here before. Certainly not within the memory of this 
year's seniors. Climax of the show, this scene had within it all the 
elements of greatness that lie within the modern romanticism in 
art and literature. As a production, lighting and staging were mas- 
terfully handled. As a creative effort, it is of a piece with the real- 
ity of Saroyan and the passion of Ellington. As a presentation to 
the MSC audience, it is a classic not soon to be forgotten. 

Bravissime, to those who produced the show, bravissime and also 
encore ! 

A good many students don't know 
what this column is, because it dates 
back to the time when there were 
more students on campus. Some up- 
perclassmen remember it as a col- 
umn originating from one of the stu- 
dent governing bodies; namely, the 
Student Senate. Others don't know 
and care less what the Student Sen- 
ate endeavors to accomplish besides 
the wearing of such cranial ornaments 
as were referred to earlier in the sea- 
son as being "those bonnets that are 
simply out of this world". 

Essentially, The Black Hats, which 
will occur from time to time in the 
Collegian, is an informative column, 
written for the express purpose of 
letting the student body (or should 
1 say those who are interested enough 
in their College to read its news- 
paper) know what is going on. 

As of the spring of 194'J, the Stu- 
dent Senate, so called, was declared 
inactive for the duration, and a gov- 
erning agent known as the Senate 
Associates, was inaugurated to han- 
j die such duties as might come up with 
a greatly decreased student body. This 
body consisted of seven members elect- 
id by the men students of the college, 
similar to the manner in which the 
Senate formerly was nominated and 
elected. This past fall, due to the 
increased enrollment, the Senate As- 
sociates became the Student Senate 
again, and its ranks were increased 
liy two former Senators. In the future 
all other members of the Senate, re- 
turning to complete their undergradu- 
ate work, will be asked to become 
active members of the present Senate. 
The original obligation given to the 
Senate Associates has been fulfilled. 
There are many new things that 
could be said at this time, but most 
of them shall be reserved for a later 
issue of the column. However, there 
might be something said about some 
pertinent facts that have arisen this 

There seems to be what we might 
call isolated criticism about the gov- 
erning bodies of the college. I use the

by Yours Truly 

Emily Dickinson, Amherst, Mass. (1830-1886) 

I shall keep singing ! Birds will pass me 
On their way to yellower climes ; 
Each with a robin's expectation,— 
I with my redbreast and my rhymes. 

Late«when I take my place in Summer, 
But I shall sing a fuller tune; 
Vespers are sweeter than Matins, Signor,-- 
Morning, only the seed of Noon. 

This week, the 115th anniversary of the birth of Emily Dickin- 
son, her "fuller tune" still sounds. Long after the nightfall, the 
sound of her voice persists, a thing of beauty, the song of univer- 
sal emotion sung by a recluse. 

Bond Drive 

So many times in the past, we have found occasion to give 
throat to a cry of fury when results of money-collecting campaigns 
are made known, that it is now a relief and a pleasure to commend 
the campus as a whole, students, faculty, and staff, for the admir- 
able success of the bond drive. In particular, we thank Professor 
lioberts and his committee, including students Ronald Thaw and 
Edith Dover, for the splendid work accomplished by them during 

the past few weeks. 

Also, we would like to apologize for the remark recently made in 
this column to the effect that the students were more interested 
in their own present than in their own or their country's future. 
We were wrong. 

One of the profs on campus in- 
formed his class that he gained all his 
knowledge at his mother's knee and 
other joints. 

For the first time in years the 
Olde ("e" for antique) Drills Halle 
will fail to shudder with the pounding 
of rhythm and feet at the Annual 
Military Ball. It almost requires ten 
minutes of silent meditation or a post- 
mortem or something. Besides the co- 
eds will have to have gym classes on 
that day. The amazing post-war inno- 
vation of the year is the fact that the 
coeds will have a one-thirty or possi- 
bly a two o'clock permission. Talk 
about radical changes. 

It is pretty certain that we are 
losing our A.S.T.R.P. MEN. It will be 
pretty lonely without the patter of 
little feet, but we can't have the 
"Vets", who are scheduled to arrive 
en masse, digging foxholes to sleep in. 
There has finally been organized on 
campus a committee of students who 
are serious about making our college 
a university, and they are evidently 
going to DO something about it. Also 
some of the letter-writers will be 
pleased to know that it is a represent- 
ative body meaning of course that the 
women students are also represented. 
The fact that on campus there is 
a great deal of sorority politics is 
known but not talked about in gen- 
eral. It is also known however that 
supposedly and in practice everything 
is as fair and as equalized as possible 
It is also evident that there is a great 
I deal of fraternity politics as there 
[ always was and always will be. How- 
over may we throw out this thought. 
At this time is fraternity politics as 
equalized and fair as it might be? I 
can hear them saying now, "it's none 
of my business" and "dog eat dog".

Bouquets to the hardy souls (all 
49.50*3 <>f them) in the sophomore 
and junior classes that braved Fri- 
day's wintry rains and polled their 
ballots in class elections. Is it too 
much to ask of the other 60fl that 
they drop into Mem. Hall for two 
minutes to vote — or don't they care? 
Are these class elections indica- 
tive of the student's interest in their 
government? The seniors (7"> r ; vot- 
ing) were better, but still far short of 
the interested, alert student bodies 
of years past. We feel that more ef- 
fort and cooperation will return just 

Our choice for top honors in cam-

Here's a good one, hot off the well

dent, upon taking the long trek to 
the notorious Ptomaine Tavern (oc- 
casionally referred to as the Campus 
Dining Hall) for a good appetizing 
Sunday dinner, discovered to his dis- 
may that one of his green beans was 
crawling all over his plate. Closer 
scrutinization revealed that this bo- 
tanical phenomenon was not a bean 
but a cockroach, no less. Our hero 
showed the little fellow to one of the 
dining hall executives and was forced 
to be content with this reply: 

"What did you expect, a Canary?" 
There is no doubt in our minds and 
possibly in yours, that this was a most 
clever remark deserving at least a 
box of Snickers and a free trip to 
North Amherst by wheel-barrow — 
but what would that prove? Why are 
we continually hearing reports of this 
sort about the food at Draper? We 
realize that much has been said about 
this in the past, but why isn't some- 
thing done about it? 

Hats off to the Collegian Xmas

We should like to add, in closing, 
a ray of hope for the stronger half 
of the Homo sapiens. A wise man is 
reputed to have said, "Marry by all

j,.i... n.MI HIIMIMIMiW t MmHtlllMIIMi, 

Last week was noteworthy for the 
abundance of rumors that swept ovei 
the Abbey, giving rise to much spec 
ulation. One little gem was concerned 
with the leaving of the first company 
January 30. At that time, any of the 
first company "vets" who qualif\ 
for a third term are scheduled to bl 
shipped to Norwich, Vermont. Accord 
ing to the "experts' , who will to! 
you they have exact information, the 
second company will join the first ii 
the trek to the "infamous militar;. 
school of Vermont". For proof the\ 
point to the just-issued passes, whicl 
expire Jan 80. However, this reporto 
spoke to Lieutenant Fiddes Monda\ 
and was assured that it was extremeh 
improbable that the second would 
leave MSC in the middle of their term. 
One happy bit of scuttlebut cm 
lontly making the rounds is that our 
already generous Christmas vacatior 
may be extended to end January 2 in 
stead of the first as had been previ- 
ously decided. In any case we cer 
tainly appreciate our lengthy furlough 
and to say that the fellows are looking' 
forward to it with great anticipation 
is putting it mildly. 

The ASTRPfl who signed up for the 
dance at the Mary Burnham School 
last Saturday were pleasantly sur- 
prised when they arrived. For the 
affair turned out to be a formal and ■ 
date was waiting for each man. The 
orchestra which came all the wa> 
from "deah old Boston" did not in our 
opinion even compare with our AS'l 
III' band but that did not detract 
much from a very enjoyable evening, 
which saw quite a few sweet friend- 
ships spring up. 

The opening of Mem Hall for rec 
reation on certain nights was good 
news to the ASTRPs. Thanks a lot 
to those who were responsible foi 
making it possible — and that re- 
minds us, we're also grateful for th. 
amazing change that has transformed 
the Y.W. room from a bare, drah 
place to a comfortable attractive room 
where you can get away for a time 
from the distinctly unhomelike quali- 
ties of the Abbey. 

An old game, which has gained new 
popularity around the Abbey lately, 
is cribbage. Any night on the second 
floor you can see the addicts of the 
game playing, while ever-pres- nt 
kibitzers give their unwanted advice. 
At present the dean of cribbage play- 
ers in the Abbey is Pvt. Edward 
Smookler whose nearest opponent il

never completely finished, and the 
rush of years has left it with the look 
of straining on its leash to expand and 
rush southward. 

Inside, there is the same air of 
eagerness and activity; inside are the 
two very efficient Departments of 
physiology and Bacteriology. Habitues 
have been known to remark that 
stranger things go on in Marshall 
Hall than are dreampt of in the phi- 
losophy of a Statesman. 

For instance Physiology 75, the 
physiology of nutrition. That sounds 
like a harmless definition of an ad- 
vanced course in a particular science. 
Hut look: 

The little card we received said only 
that there would be a coffee hour on

Coffee is coffee, but on entering the 
laboratory on the second floor of 
Marshall Hall we were greeted with a 
I display of food set out in the most 
appetizing buffet service these sore 
.ves have seen in many a day. 

We wish the Collegian had a food

might say, generously served. Broad 
expanses of fine linen were set off by 
the gleam of shining silver, and roses 
added just the proper touch of color 
to make the food as appetizing as any 
I ever seen by starving Draper patrons. 
Whence all this abundance, this 
I cornucopia of apples, this array of

Who Is Kilroy? 

by John Mastalerz 

Yes, the mystery has finally been 
solved. Kilroy has been discovered. 
Many of you have seen signs appear- 
ing on walls, doors, and walks, saying: 
"Kilroy slept here", "Kilroy walked 
through this door", "Kilroy talked to 
his girl here", and at Draper, "Kilroy 
ate here, Kilroy died here". But who 
is this energetic "guy" who seems to 
get around so much ? 

Newsweek Magazine has finally 
given the answer. Kilroy is not a cam- 
pus figure; his only connection with 
MSC is the fact that the real Kilroy 
and the Cadets are Army Air Force 
men. Some cadet has started as many 
others have done, the advertising of 
Kilroy by writing the Kilroy signs 
around campus, thus starting a chain 
of Kilroy signs and making the real 
Kilroy one of the most famous men in 
the Army Air Forces. 

The real Kilroy is an Army Air 
Force sergeant from Everett, Mass 
The fad of "Kilroy sayings" started 
when a friend of his, Sgt. James Ma- 
loney, placed a notice on the bulletin 
board of Baca Raton Field, Florida: 
"Kilroy will be here next week". This 
notice started the campaign which 
made Kilroy the most famous man in 
the Army Air Force and the great 
mystery on the MSC campus. Thu=. 
other Air Force men, and the Cadets, 
took up the writing of "Kilroy signs". 

of us can get along without them: 
and this seems to offer us our on'y 
bit of consolation.

cities. Upon her arrival here, America 
f discovered" her at once, finding her 

personality of vivid charm and a 
linger possessed of a magnificent 
■ oice trained in the greatest traditions 
>f vocal art. 

Suzanne Sten likes America and 
imerican audiences She finds their 
reaction the most intelligent, sponta- 
leotts, and sincere of any she has 
fvor encountered. She says: "Ameri- 
can audiences hear music without the 
disadvantages of convention, tradition, 
ind prejudice that clouds the impres- 
Jinns of European listeners. America 
isks only if a singer 'has something'. 
If this is so, the favorable audience 
(■faction is quickly forthcoming, and 
v ere is at once established that inde- 
finable affinity between the singer 
md listeners that is essential for a 
pccestful performance." 

To pot a job through a telephone 
ludition is a new way of doing things, 
kt Miss Sten has done that. too. Re- 
f' tly, when a manager in California 
I ted on hearing the mezzo- soprano 
'■■■ fore oneraging her for the title role 
I Rio Rita", Miss Sten oxneriment- 
H r ''i a local telephone to find the best 
bot to sing from, called the produc- 
er inne distance, sang for him, and 
caeed on the spot. 
Miss Sten claims to he good at 
'Shaking, and also wields a pro- 
I'flc autograph pen. 

And the beauty of the display? A 
complication introduced by Doctor 
Gage, teacher of the course and De- 
partment Head, to make all the food 
appetizing, so that selection should be 
unbiased. We suspect, however, that 
Dr. Gage had other reasons, for he 
seemed to enjoy vastly the coffee hour 
that followed the scientific experi- 
ment. The students and a few invited 
guests (among them Pfc. Joyce Gibbs 
'45) were urged to finish the experi- 
mental material, and Dr. Gage put 
himself forward as an excellent host 
to those who were enjoying the meal 
he had prepared. 

We discussed methods of coffee- 
making with Mr. Blair, who prefers 
the open pot method, but who served 
from a glass coffee machine, we hesi- 
tated with Mrs. Powers over the rela- 
tive merits of vanilla and chocolate, 
we marveled over the culinary skill of 
Dr. Gage, who was willing to give the 
recipe for his excellent cake, and we 
ate to our heart's content. 

It was late dusk as we left, munch- 
ing an apple and wondering how to 
get to take another physiology course,

tion, because it has been made known 
to the writer that there was quite a 
concerted effort to reform the stu- 
dent government. However, in no in- 
stance was ever a letter or document, 
suggestive or otherwise, received by 
the Senate itself or the Associates 
from any individual or collected group. 
The Senate has a mail box in which 
it would appreciate receiving any 
correspondence, suggestive, critical, 
or demanding, from any student or 
students. Granted that the Senate 
mail box has suffered casualities

the students care to forward. 

The election of officers for the jun- 
ior and sophomore classes was held 
last Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 
in the Mem Building. Announcements 
wore made at the class meetings on 
Thursday that elections would be held 
the following day; yet only 49% of 
the juniors and 50*> of the sopho- 
mores responded. The Senate is leav- 
ing it up to each class in question, in 
meetings following convocation today, 
whether they wish to reopen the vot- 
ing for a limited period of time to 
allow those who didn't get a chance 
to cast their ballot, or whether the 
polls shall be closed and results tabu- 
lated from existing records. 

The Senate is endeavoring to repre- 
sent the student body as it was origi- 
nally intended, although the effects 
of the war are still very much in evi- 
dence. Joint WSGA-Senate meetings 
have been held and will continue

French Gub To Give 
Traditional Pageant 

At 7:15 on Thursday, December 13 
the French Club will present its an- 
nual Christmas pageant. Old Chapel 
will turn into a cathedral for the mid- 
night Mass ceremony enacted by the 
French Club. The pageant will be 
fashioned after those of the middle 
ages which were popular in Southern 
France. The French Club has copied 
the custom and has made it a tradi- 
tional campus function. 

In the Middle Ages it was the habit 
for all French families after return- 
ing from the Cathedral to have a 
Rovoillon, or Banquet. This year the 
French Club is having a petit reveil- 
lon for its members after the nativity- 
scone at the Cathedral. The annual 
pageant which the French Club start- 
ed on this campus has won the ap- 
proval of many including the students 
of Emanoul College who have bor- 
rowed the custom from us. 

Ruth Felstiner is directing this 
year's production. Included in the cast 
are Mohsen Fazli '49 as Joseph, Jane 
Londergan '4G as Mary, and Robert 
LeBrec as Le Pasteur. Frances Archi- 
bald will be the pianist for the eve- 
ning. Costuming is under the direction 
of Joan Deyette '47; Marge Flint is 
acting as choir director; and Jean 
Spettigue '46 and Daphne Cullinan 
'46 are in charge of make-up.

Peck, Mann Delegates 
At Vets' Conference 

Art Peck and Chester Mann were 
the representatives sent from this 
campus to a conference of veterans 
now attending college, which was held 
on Friday, Dec. 7, at the national of- 
fice of the Y.M.C.A. in New York. 

Representatives of twelve colleges 
throughout the east met with leading 
authorities OH the problems of the 
veteran, in an attempt to coordinate 
the action of the various colleges in 
dealing with the pr o bl e ms confront- 
ing them. They found the most imme- 
diate problem everywhere to be the 
one of housing, both for the married 
and the single men. The second main 
problem is the general lack of really 
effective counseling on the part of col- 
lege adminstrations. This last they 
found to arise, not from the negligence 
of the administrations, but because of 
the difficulties in dealing with it. 

The Conference put B special board 
in charge of analyzing the problems, 
making necessary surveys, and work- 
ing out possible solutions. Conclusions 
and suggestions will then be formu- 
lated into bulletins made available to 
the colleges. These will be a great deal 
of material use in helping all colleges, 
including M.s C, to solve tuccessfuily 
their respective problems. 


Christmas Vespers will start fifteen 
minutes earlier than usual at 4:1"> 
p.m., Sunday, December 16. 

President William Park of the 
Noi thfiold Schools will be the speaker. 


Schedules for second-semester 
courses are now available in the 
Dean's office. Students should see 
their advisers and plan their 
schedules before December 20th.

by Jacqueline Marien 

Certainly by fall of 1947, Massachu-

hill to Butterfield to do their studying, 
not their courting, for this will be 
"home" to them. The Statesmen wi 
also be entering two new dorms which 
are to be built in the same area by tl 
Alumni Building Corporation on the 
plan of Lewis Hall and Hutterfieh 

Dispossessed from their lofty re- 
cluse, the coeds will reside at the Ah 
bey, Lewis, and Thatcher all newh 
remodeled. Behind them and along th( 
north side of Lover's Lane, the soroi 
ity houses may be constructed. How- 
ever, this last project is still undei 
general discussion and will be worked 
out with the individual groups. 

Funds have already been appropri 
ated for a Home Economics building 
including a nursery soon to be con- 
structed north of the Hill's Gardei 
between Stockbridge Road and North 
Pleasant Street. However, concerning 
other classroom buildings, no definite 
progress has been made. Special re- 
quests have been sent to the State 
legislature emphasizing our need for 
new Physics and Engineering accomo- 

The committees which are working 
with President Baker on plans for 
Mass. State's future include the very 
active Campus Planning Council with 
Professor Pice as chairman and ai

These experienced MSC graduates are 
formulating a long-range plan for the 
development of the campus within our 
"sacred" center rather than outside 
its present boundaries.

At this writing, Coach Ball expects

after the Christmas vacation. (It

bout cominp to practice in order to 
patch up on their studies.) In addition, 
oteh Rail revealed that the influx

ihould contain some experienced has- 
etball players. As things stand now 
, squad is small in numbers and 
stature, but scrappy and willing to 
learn. As mentioned in last week's 
column, team A is composed of Lee, 
I ansing, Stanne, Chiklakis, Sasahor-

lowever, the probable lineup for 
Friday evening's tilt with Norwich 
tvill be Lansing and at the for-

it guards, and Stanne at center. 
As I have been doing in the past, 
would like to reserve the remaining 
portion of "Sportscast" to a discussion 
pi athletics and its importance to 
MSC. However, instead of discussing 
Ihe problem myself this week, I would 
like to turn the discussion over to the 
capable hands of Chet Rowen '!'.», 
1 olle >{ian sports writer. Here is what 
ys about the problem. 
"I, as a freshman, probably shouldn't 
bepress my opinion too freely, but, in 
of that fact, I'm going to, in 
this one instance. In regard to the 
)uestion as to whether or not there is 
inv validity in the theory that a 
s reputation in athletics gov- 
erns to a certain extent its overall 
reputation, I would definitely answer 
11 the affirmative. A college's reputa- 
tion in football particularly is helpful 
[o the school. As an illustration, con- 
Side] the respective reputations of 
fotre Dame and Mass. State. Now, 
>l)\iously the former is much better 
tnown and more highly esteemed by 
\hv general public than State is Rut 
ivhy is it such? It's not because Notre 
I'ame is scholastically higher than 
.S.C., because we doubt if it is 
ligher. Even if it were, the general 
uiblic probably wouldn't recognize it. 
he real reason why Notre Dame is 
ore highly esteemed than Mass. 
-tate is that it puts out better athletic 
learns. Recause it has a higher reputa- 
tion, Notre Dame enjoys more ad- 
vantages than State. 

Of course, State couldn't hope to 

•ut out football teams with as much 

thility as those of Notre Dame but 

in y way the comparison between the 

|wo schools shows how much differ- 

I a reputation In athletics can 

Effect the status of a school. Rut 

though State's athletic teams 

ildn't build up to the standards of 

i of Notre Dame, they could 

up to a much higher standard

they will be served refreshments, and

than that which they have attained 
thus far. Having attained a fairly 
high standard in sports, State would 
become more well-known to the public 
and consecquently more students 
would want to attend this college. 
Also State would gain more recogni- 
tion from the State legislature, which 
unquestionably would be an advan- 

"Of course, in order to gain a good 
reputation in sports, State would have 
to play better teams and defeat them. 
In order to defeat good teams they 
would need good players and in order 
to get good players, State would have 
to encourage good athletes in high 
school to come to State, not by means 
of bribery or offers of certain privi- 
leges, but by legitimate media, such 
as communication with them and reve- 
lation of the advantages of attending 
State. By the latter means, at least 
some good high school ahletes would 
come to State. 

"In summary, it cannot be very well 
doubted that a college's reputation in 
athletics exert a great influence on 
the public, an influence which can be 
decidedly advantageous to the college. 
And if State would encourage good 
athletes to come here, it would help 
itself to gain that influence which 
is especially needed at a state college." 


" Wonders of the Great Rarrici 
Reef", a fascinating color film of 
underwater life and coral formations 
was shown this morning at convoca- 
tion by Mr. T. C. Roughlev, Deputy 
Controller of Fisheries in the state 
of New South Wales, Australia. 

Mr. Roughley, author of sea life 
and formations, illustrates in his book, 
"Harrier Reef", an amazing coral for- 
mation some twelve miles long which 
lies in tropical and semi-tropical 
wateis off the coast of Queensland 
This surface beauty of long chains 
of islands is more than rivaled by the 
formation beneath the water anil 
offers a new en joyment for the tourist 
and big-game hunter.

Conrad Thibault, popular American 
baritone who appears here at Rowker 
Auditorium on January II under the 
auspices of Social Union, offers an 
interesting study in contrasts He 
could be taken for a glamour-boy 
( five-foot eleven, 170 pounds, ami 
handsome, with brown eyes, chestnut 
brown hair, a musical forehead, and 
Strong manly features); his taster 
veer sharply away from glamour and 
center entirely in his singing and his 
home. He has attained conspicuous 
popularity without ever compromising 
his standard! Of great art. Member of 
a profession that is generally credited 
with maintaining its share of ego, he 
is modest to the point of hiding the 
light of his most thrilling experiences 
under a bushel of shyness. 

Perhaps the best explanation of 
Thibault is his own complete sincerity. 
The feeling of "real truth" that com- 
municates itself to bis hearers in 
every song he sings, emerges also 
from everything he does and says. He 
feels uncomfortable in the presence of 
show or sham. He hates pretense. Ho 
isn't above saying, "I don't know"; 
isn't afraid of shocking you when he 
tells you that he loves to spend bis 
scanty free-time at home, pattering 
about, helping Mrs. Thibault plan the 
menus, assisting with the cooking, 
taking their young son, Billy, to the 
park. Once a news reporter in perfect 
rood faith, misinterpreted a remark 
of Thibault's and gave him public 
credit that he felt he didn't deserve. 
Thibault grieved about that for weeks. 
Yes. it was "good publicity" - but 
it wasn't trur: Well, partly true, but 
not entirely so. Press-agents have 
(piite a time with him. 

Thibault reveres everything that is 
good music and good music doesn't 
have to be the heavier classics. Folk- 
airs, ballads with a heart-glow, better 
popular songs, Strauss Waltzes, Snusa 
Marches, and songs that reflect the 
life of the people — all these are good 
music, Thibault tells you, because 
they're sincere; because they send a 
moment of genuine feeling from the 
heart of the composer to the heart of 
the listener. And the singer? Oh, says 
Thibault, he's not too important — 
he's just the instrument that allows 
the communication to take place. 
Thibault devotes much time to 

• MMMMttltMl * I. I. .1 MM. Ml *>>.*• MIMM. •"; 

studying his audiences wants to 

know what they like, why they like it, 
how they react. His mission as a 
singer is to give pleasure to those who 
are nice enough to come and hear him. 
The fact that he does please them 
results partly from his magnificent 
voice and artistry, and partly from 
the frank, sincere nature of Conrad 

MSC Accident Insurance 
Plan Will Be Reopened 

Accident <>r illness may cause such 

serious financial loss that a student 
has to give op college work for the 
year or else the family has to carry 
a heavy additional load which Intel 
feres with the family living. In Sep- 
tember you were offered for the first 
time a reimbursement plan to provide 
medical, surgical, and hospital care 
throughout the college year for both 
accident and illness. In the falT lfil 
students accepted the plan. 

By agreement with the Company 
the plan will he reopened for the 
second semester, the coverage to run 
from the date of enrollment to June 
IS, 1946. The price for one semester 
is one-half the price for the college 
year. The College plans to send to 
parents a notice with the term bills 
and payments are made to the College 

This offer makes no change in the 
College policy of providing infirmary 
service which is free up to seven 
days per year. Reyond this free period, 
the eharge is $2.00 per day. The plan 
is open to students in all courses. It 
is designed to provide protection at 
a reasonable cost against unexpected 
and heavy expenses for accidents and 
illness. It should he understood that 
the college has no financial interest 
of any kind in this plan and merely 
acts as a clearing house for the 
receiving of premiums.

Beauty, Beauty, particularly, in re-

his art is no extremist; rather he is 
one who insists upon a sound struc-

is nothing if not classic. Listen to 
his own advice to romantics:

And fashion you a wintry verse, 
And have your strict reward of it: 

Seeing the taut and hammered line 
Of the sparse blossom from that soil 
Achieve a hardness that will shine, 
And a thin fragrance owed to toil." 
But David Morton is more than a 
finished technician. Warmth of mood, 
sensitive perception, poetic simplic- 
ity of utterance, a musician's ear foi 
melody make his lyrics live and sing 
His latest volume, Poem*, 1920-1915, 
is a selection of nearly three hundred 
pieces representing quite adequately 
the whole extent of Mr. Morton '.- 
poetic output to the moment. The 
volume is divided about equally be 
tween poems recently written but not 
published hitherto, and those drawi 
from his book that have appeared in 
the last quarter of a century.

Morton Speaks At Convo 
Changes In Point System 


David Morton, the distinguished 
modern poet, will be the speaker at 
convocation next Thursday. Mr. Mor- 
ton lias been a friend of the college 

for many years ami has been the 
friend of many individual §tudent», 
sonic of whom he has started off in 
their careen 

The Significance of Mi. Morton's 
poetry attaches to the principles of 
beauty in relation to human life. He 
insists upon a sound structure, a form, 

a pattern in poetry that is nothing 

if not classic. His warmth of mood, 
sensitive perception, poetic simplicity 
of utterance, and musician's ear for 
melody makes his lyrics live and 
■ittg. His new hook "Collective I'oems" 
which appeared this fall, is a selection 
of nearly three hundred pieces repre- 
senting the whole extent of Mr. Mor- 
ton's poetic Otttpvt to the moment. 

This week the W'SC.A and the Sen- 
ate had charge of convocation. The 
program started off with Community 
tinging and later Professor Barrett 

showed moving pictures of the Ani- 
herst-M.S.C. football Rame.

On January 2 Mr. Howard Lamarr 
of the History Department spoke on 
Southern Authors. Mr. Lamarr is a 
graduate of Emery University in 
Georgia and is a member of an old 
southern family, having been brought 
up on a plantation in Tuskegee, Ala-

Conrad Thibault, the "local" talent 

which will be presented by Social 

Union on Monday, January 11, figures 
also among the greatest and most 
popular in the country. Thibault will 

then again make his appearance before 

the students of M.S.C. in Bowker 

Probably very fortunate for us is 
the fact thai his is actually local 
talent, Horn in Northbridge, but grow 

ing iij' in Northampton, all of Mr. 

Thibault's early experiences battling 
with math, singing in a church choir, 
making his first appearance in ".lack 
the Giant-Killer" at the age of ten 
all of these are closely connected with 
this very region 

His career first received impetus 
when another 'son of Massachusetts', 
Calvin CooUdge, heard htm sin^- In a 
church choir, and sought the boy out 
to encourage him to make singing his 
career. Prom this point, Mr. Thi- 
bault's story is the Great American 
Fairy tale. Stimulated by the interest 
in his voice shown by the ex-Presi- 
dent, Mr. Thibault competed for 
a musical scholarship from the Curtis 
Institute of Music, and astonished 
himself by winning. 

After a great deal of study under 
the famed baritone and teacher, Emilio 
de Gorgorza, after a long time of fill- 
ing in with such jobs as floorwalking, 
and singing with a dance orchestra, 
Mr. Thibault was finally given a 
chance to sing minor roles with the 
Philadelphia Grand Opera Company. 
The climax of the Fairy Tale came 
when the leading baritone of the 
company fell ill. With only an hour 
to go until curtain time, the man- 
agement cast about frantically for 
someone to sing Sebastino in Eugen 
D'Albert's "Tiefland". Young Thi- 
bault volunteered, and with some 
misgiving, they gave him the part. 
They weren't sorry, for it was his 
resounding success that night that set 
him on the road to fame. 

Since that time Conrad Thibault's 
upward climb has been strong and 
steady, and today he is the best- 
known, most-heard baritone in radio, 
having been the star of shows by 
Maxwell House, Coca-Cola, A.&P.

is decorating the Hall. 
Highlight of the evening will be 

the selection of an Honorary Colonel 
chosen by the chaperons, during inter- 
mission, for her beauty, charm, and 
personality. In the traditional cere 
mony of the past, the Honorary Colo- 
nel has been ushered in, 'neath crossed 
sabers of the R.O.T.C, to the com- 
mandant of the corps, who placed the 
mantle on her shoulders. She then 
departed 'neath crossed- sabers, and 
later, was privileg ed to review the 
troops at the spring formation 

Only a few years after the founding 
of the college the first Mil Hall was 
held and soon became a tradition, 
marking the high spot in the military 
program of the college. The choosing 
of an Honorary Colonel has played an 
important role from the beginning.

and amusements to induce all States- 
men to help the cause of the carnival; 
raising the necessary money for the 
support of Belgium orphai b. Belgian 

orphans were chosen to benefit by the

College Students? 

Last Sunday night, the blast of the fire alarm shuddered 
through the town. The local fire engine spluttered over to South 
Prospect Street to find that a fire alarm had been rung in. People 
were standing on their front porches in the area, while a few Am- 
herst boys talked to the firemen in the street. 

It seems that a group of "daring" vandals had broken several 
windows in the Fraternity house, tried to steal a bicycle, shouted 
extremely foul curses at the sleeping house, and climactically 
turned in a false alarm, only to flee swiftly before the fire depart- 
ment arrived. 

One Amherst professor remarked in the street discussion that 
followed this admirable affair, that the Statesmen were proving 
themselves to be cheap, foul-mouthed, destructive, and sneaky. 
Several families in the vicinity, awakened by the general noise and 
confusion, exclaimed that M.S.C. is swiftly gaining the reputation 
of being a college for ill-bred, malicious persons. 

At another time within the last week, valuable objects were 
stolen sneak-thief style from one of the fraternity houses. More 

admirable work! 

The devil with what Amherst has done to State! Even their 
occasional violences might well have been committed in retaliation 
for some State work. 

Are we a bunch of childish vandals that we break windows, 
turn in false alarms, and steal valuable property ? Are we the type 
of cheap hoodlums who like to shriek out malicious oaths just to 
antagonize people? Ridiculous, isn't it? "College men are mature" 
. Bah! 

These acts of midnight vandalism are of course very daring and 
exciting at the time, but afterward a sense of shame ought to come 
to any college student who participates in such activities. Of course 
this exemplifies the finest degree of school spirit 

Name one good reason for antagonizing Amherst and that rea- 
son will undoubtedly show you to be small, mean, jealous, or just 
plain hot-headed. Think of the lovely name our college is gaining 
through these sneaky, night-time operations. 

Grow up, fellows, grow up! 

— A. P. M. 

School is like a bathtub full of steaming water— after a while 

it's not so hot. 

In the New World we can only hope that the splitting of 
marriages does not keep pace with the splitting of atoms. 

The slow movement of G.I.'s back to this country has caused 
many of the co-eds to wait for the "paws that refreshes. 

Hitler's boast that Berlin would be the most beautiful city in 
the world proved to be hollow — in fact Berlin is now a hollow. 

As if we didn't already know that the dogtracks were closed, 
the newspapers came out with the following headline, "Greyhounds 
stop running in East." 

General Motors cannot fill orders for cars now. If you want one, 
you can (picket) from their fine new catalogue. 

Struggling rabbit sets off gun, wounding himself in foot. The 
gun must have had a "hare" trigger. 

for class records of contemporary 
professors, who seem to have included 
it in their lecture-periods, we'd have 
no record of this phenomenon. 

We understand that these creatures 
were so foolish as to sit in Psych, and 
complain merely hecause the examina- 
tions being given in the course were 
much too long, much too difficult and 
highly overrated. They spent hours 
examining rocks over which they had 
no control, or they would spend days 
preparing Chemistry experiments, all 
of which had been done before. Some 
courses were givrm directly from the 
text-book, while others were given 
with field studies; some boys went to 
Smith to study the specimens there, 
and some went to Amherst to see what 
they could pick up. 

They had Thursday meetings simi- 
lar to our student-managed Celebrity 
Series to which attendance, of neces- 
sity, was compulsory. If it were a day 
when movies were being shown, the 
hall would empty as soon as the 
lights went out. If it were a speaker, 
it would be empty anyhow. Such 
politeness! But they probably knew no 
better as was indicated by their habit 
of pushing faculty members aside at 
C-Store soda fountains; "excuse me", 
we gather, was not in common use. 

Although they acknowledged the 
presence of God to a degree, their 
Vesper Services had to be discontin- 
ued for lack of support.

would like further information, you

After a respite of almost three 
years, MSC will return to the wars of 
the intercollegiate basketball court, 
engaging the wily engineers from 
W.P.I. The Statesmen will play the 
Technicians twice this week in a 
home-and-home series that promises 
to be a bit too much for the Maroon 
and White. 

At this present writing the lads 
from Worcester have taken part in 
three court tilts defeating Norwich 
IL, 75 to 21 ; Northeastern U., .">7 to 
41; and losing to powerful A.I.C., 4-> 
to 37. In Coach Red Ball's own words 
the brace of games this week will be 
"tough ones". Regardless of the way 
things look now, upsets are known to 
occur, and with the fighting team 
that we have, anything is possible. 

The opening lineup for State in 
both games will probably be: Lee and 
Lansing at the two forward posts; 
Stanne and Stambrowski at guards; 
and Raymond, at the pivot post. 
Alternating with these boys will be: 
Jainski, Levotny, Chiklakis, Cza.ia, 
and Malley 

In retrospect, State's last active 
intercollegiate basketball season, 1912 
to 1943, yielded five wins and eight

Well — suppose that by now all you 
industrious students of M.S.C. have 
begun to root yourselves to the labori- 
ous tasks that lie ahead (False as- 
sumption, doubtless, but the intentions 
were good.) Being as how students 
have that peculiar characteristic of 
allowing assignments to slide by — on 
rare occasions, to be sure — the ensu- 
ing weeks hold promise of many 
pleasant moments to be had 'neath 
the soft glow of a hundred watt bulb. 
Course there'll be a bedraggled weed 
drooping wearily and the inevitable 
coke bottle. That, in these thirsty 
times, will very likely be an empty 
one, but contributing to the atmos- 
phere, nonetheless. And speaking of 
thirsty times, t'was a gay New Year, 
was it not? Recall the days when 
Mass. State spent a hilarious New 
Year's at the thriving metropolis of 
Amherst. Shades of '43 and '44! In- 
cidentally, since the new year is now

Boston or New York? 

The committee to choose a titf 
for UNO has been in New York sever- 
al days. They are to visit possilo- 
sites for the permanent location o!J

Boston, The committee will re< 
mend ten or more locations to the! 
General Assembly in London whirl 
will make the final decision. 

Right now it looks as if Hyde Park; 
New York, has the best chance fi 
obtaining the UNO site. The home oil 
the late great President Roosev. 
has sentimental significance, as w. 
as being located in the scenic Hud 
son Valley, not too close to Ne*| 
York City. 

Hut the case for Boston still ha;' 
definite strength. Eastern Massachu) 
setts has special charm as the tra 
ditional home of American independj 

ten days old, it ought to be time to ence. Why cannot the area where th 

stop the celebrating. 

Right around the corner, now, is 
that big week-end, that gala affair. 
I suspect t'will be a flutter-making 
moment for the sizzling debs of M.S.C. 
What with a smattering of every 
branch of the service and their re- 
spective uniforms, it ought to be 
quite a shin dig. Romance! Music! 
Oh! The fragrance of youth! (Sigh) 

To get back to earth (grim thought) 
what a hypocrite the weather man 
turned out to be. After hours of back 
breaking labor, the terrific new ski 
trail is ready for use. And so, true 
to form, spring comes to town in Jan- 
uary. Oh woe — what good skiis unless 
they float. 

Now — as Uncle Don would say — 
that's all for today kiddies. That rest

defeats. Although the cold facts, in 
themselves, reveal that State's court 
fortunes that year were strictly medi- 
ocre, they overlook the playing of 
some stellar performers. The top 
player that year was Bucky Bokina, 
who scored 166 points in nine games, 
giving him a season average of 17.3 
points per game. Other outstanding 
players of that year were Captain 
Ray Kneeland, Dick Maloy, Tom Kel- 
ley, and Stan Waskiewicz. 

Although the present squad does 
not compare with the '43 team in 
ability, it does possess loads of fight- 
ing spirit, an attribute that goes a 
long way in making a basketball team. 
Because of this we ask you, the stu- 
dent body, to give OUR team your 
whole-hearted support to make this 
first post war basketball season a 
successful one. 

The cessation of the war has re- 
sulted in some additions to the coach- 
ing department at MSC. Both Fran

this reason. 

The Springfield area has been defj 
initely ruled out, so it is too late I 
suggest our own town of Amherst. 

The Moscow Conference 

The Foreign Ministers of the Hi? 
Three have concluded their Mosco" 
meeting and a lengthy communiqi 
has been released. Agreement wa; 
reached on all points of different 
except one — the question of Iran. 

At least the cynicism which haci 
grown out of the stalemated Londo: 
Conference has been replaced by s 
new spirit of cooperation. As th- 
UNO opens in London today, we ca:| 
offer much hope for the eventual suc| 
cess of international organization. 

At the Moscow meeting Rossi 
agreed to liberalize the government;] 
of Roumania and Bulgaria by addiru" 
at least two members of opposite 
parties. We agreed to allow Rus^ 
greater voice in the Japanese occupa- 
tional government, while reserving 
for Gen. MacArthur much of hi; 
present power. 

The Russians agreed to submi'j 
peace treaties to a general confer' 
but the Big Powers will have fina 
say on them. The United States

Camera Club Exhibit 
Displayed In Goodell 

Again a new display has been added 
to the Goodell Library. The Amherst 

Camera Cluh has on the second floor 

an exhibit of 21 pictures which are 
both interesting and a pleasant addi- 
tion to the second floor corridor. This 
display of pictorial effort was sent 
by The Miniature Camera Club of 
N T ew York, Inc. The name can be 
deceiving; actually, the club is very 
large but the pictures are taken with 
small cameras. The pictures on exhibit 
in the libe are greatly enlarged. The 
members of this club include some of 
the prominent New York pictorialists 
amonp whom is Dr. Fitzgerald of 
Richmond, Virginia. Amonj? the 21 
pictures on display, perhaps you will 
enjoy most the unusual "Harmony in 
Brown" taken by Eric Lovlf, or 
Morris Sedlow's suggestive "Shore

"Whitneyville" entered by Claude 

Since 1935, the Amherst Camera 
Club has exchanged its efforts with 
other camera clubs all over the coun- 
try and since that year there have 
been ACC exhibits in Goodell. Pre- 
viously, there were two exhibits 
monthly, but due to the present tran.-. 
imitation difficulties, there has been, 
in recent years, only one exhibit per 
month. This month, the local club's 
exhibit is on display in New York, 
and from there it will go to Chicago. 
Members of the club, as of other such 
clubs, are not necessarily Amherst 
residents; they may come from other 
towns and states and the members 
may belonir to more than one club.

Point System 

Continued ftom pago 1 
for this year only, the Point System 

Committee has decided to allow the 
of 1946 a limit of up to ami in- 
eluding thirty-five points. This has 
been done because the Point System 

came into effect in the second semes- 
ter of last year, after many of* the 
seniors had already obtained their 
extra-curricular positions. Students 
taking part in activities must also 

maintain a general scholastic average 

of at 'east seventy per cent. 

It should be understood that the 
present Committee intends to enforce 
its rules and regulations. The Polnl

Collegian Carries On 

Just as the show must v,o on, so 
too must the Collegian go to press! At 
10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, the fateful 
day, the deadline day, the telephone 
rings out plaintively It is answered, 
by whom we have yet to discover. 
Anyway, what seemed to be a harm- 
less message was left — left on top of 
an accumulating pile of papers and 
lost forever to posterity (or the next 
staff. ) 

At 2:37 p.m., via a messenger, this 
same news is again delivered to the 
office, but this time to ye editors in 
person. And sad news it was! For it 
seems as though the prominent author 
of "World At A Glance" was at that 
moment, and for a few hours previous, 
reclining in the infirmary But that 
was not all! Ye prominent columnist 
is also chairman of the Point System 
Committee, and as such has ready for 
this publication the particular number 
of points assigned each office. How- 
ever, the complete story is this: Mr. 
Golub, his column, and the Point 
System are all in the infirmary with 
the mumps! 

'Twas plain to see that all was not 
well. Something must be done. Part 
of the message that had been related 
was that the material could be ob- 
tained at the infirmary. Off to the

Anyhow, it's time to centrifuge (Time

Anyhow, you centrifuge and wait ex-

ably awful violetish-greenish-Orange

you go to your desk with your test- 
tube (or someone else's— you must ad- 
mit that you forgot to notice which 
number your test-tube was when you 
put it in.) Now the real trouble comes, 
the solution in the tube isn't exactly 
clear. There's something in it, so you 
hold it up to the light, stand on the 
desk, lie on the floor and stand on 
your head to discern what it is. While 
standing on your right hand and hold- 
ing the test-tube in your left or vice- 
versa, whichever is easier, you dis-

green instead of white. Now what to 
do— think quick — the book didn't men-

the test-tubes were contaminated when 
you started — oh but they couldn't 
have been — you washed them so thor-

Students who have scores above the 
maximum will be required to resign 
from a sufficient number of positions. 
The students will have free choice as 
to which positions they will keep, as 
long as they remain within the legal 
point limit. 

The purposes of the Point System 
are to enable more people on campus 
to participate in campus activities 
and to allow any one individual to 
carry only a reasonable amount of 
extra-curricular activities Also, it is 
honed, "BMOC's" will be iriven more 
time to devote to their scholastic pur- 
suits, an essential part, after all, of 
a college education. 

The present committee was ap- 
pointed in the beginning of the cur- 
rent semester. As last year's point 
system data had been misplaced, the 
new Committee was obliged to start 
anew. However, most of the actual 
compiling work is now completed, and 
the next Step will he enforcement of 
rules and regulations. 

The members of the committee are: 
Jeanette Cynarsld '48, Connie Ste- 
phens '48, Jerry Swanson '46, and 
Arnold Golub '47, Chairman. 

Massachusetts State College is cur- 
rently faced with an acute housing 
shortage, as are many colleges 
throughout the country, according to 
a statement made recently by Reg- 
istrar Lanphear. The number of stu- 
dents who normally enter from the 
high schools has been doubled by 
those returning veterans of World 
War two who desire to finish their 
interrupted education. Already about 
one hundred veterans have been ac- 
cepted for the coming term, and of 
these only 84 can be provided for, M 
by the college, the other 28 by pri- 
vate homes. Applications have been 
received from one hundred more vet- 
erans, and that number is expected 
at last to double by next fall, in 
addition to the regular number of 
entering students. 

The policy of the college being to 
accommodate as many as possible of 
both groups, it has established an of- 
fice of Director of Veterans' Housing, 
in the College Veterans' Hureau. This 
office is headed by Mr. Donald W. 
(adigan, Class of 19:ii>, M.S.C., who 
was formerly placement assistant of 
the college. Mr. Cadigan was 
Adjutant General, Antilles Air 
Command, San Juam, Puerto Ri- 
co, and Executive Officer, 20th Air 
Force Combat Staging Center, Iwo 
Jima. This office cooperates with the 
Housing Committee of the Amherst 
Rotary Club, which committee is 
headed by Mr. George A. Crockwell. 
According to Mr. Cadigan, there are 
three possible methods of housing the 
expected veterans; by extensive 
use of the existing facilities, by ex- 
ploitation of every possibility in pri- 
vate homes in Amherst, or by new 
facilities constructed by the Common- 
wealth of Massachusetts.

David Morton's New Publication Of 
300 Selected Poems Now Available 

(POEMS: 1*.»20 r.)4. r ), by David Mor- 
ton, published by Alfred A. Knopf; 
New York, 1 !>»•">) 

To D»vid Morton's numerous fac- 
ulty and student friends at this Col- 
lege, the recent appearance of his 
POEMS: t9tO-19A& has been i grat- 
ifying event. Here at last are con- 
centrated, within the covers of a 
tingle volume of convenient size and 
attractive make-up ami format -about 
one hundred and fifty pOWM hitherto 

distributed among six published vol- 
umes; and an equal number of poemi 

hitherto found scattered through the 
pagei of dozens of periodicals 

It is good news that autographed 
copies Of the selected POEMS are now 
available at the College Book Store. 
And the news is welcome on more thaw 
one account. The author has been a 
public-spirited member of our com- 
munity, devoting time and energy to 
the common good. Through public 
utterance and private act, he has 
shown much devotion to our college. 

again, his generoaity to many of our 
student! a.ul younger faculty members 
has been great. 

above all, David Morton's poems 
themselves have high intrinsic merit. 
They afford the sensitive reader 
pleasure which, though quiet, is per 
sistent. It outlasts the more obvious 
effects contrived by contemporaries 
Whose verse has the initial impact 
of a display of fireworks, and the 
crudeness and the quick death of such 

It has craftsmanship seemingly 
simple, yet actually subtle-a com- 
bination rare in these times of tor- 
tured verse and image. And it has 
durable substance. 

David Morton often achieves the 
miracle of memorializing, in delicate 
and beautiful form, an elusive, yet 
significant mood or idea. He often 
achieves the even greater miracle of 
concentrating, within the narrow and 
supposedly fragile limits of a lyric, 
meaning and emotional power suffi- 
cient for a novel or a full-length play. 
The selected POEMS gratifies 
David Morton's old friends. It is win- 
ning him many new ones.

Later when all efforts seemed 
wasted, the telephone once again 
broke into the noise of busied type- 
writers. Next came a somewhat start- 
ling cry of relief. Our competent medi- 
cal staff has surmounted the obstacle. 
They announced that Mr. Golub was 
occupied with recopying the column, 
but this time in pencil. Why? So that 
the staff could 'demumpnitize' the

comment: Ye gods, now everything

could have his mumps, all by his

Finally everyone was off to College 
Hall. The first thing we saw was the 
crystal ball fountain and, at the same 
time, we heard the strains of Al 
St lohmaii's orchestra. After a few 
seconds we became aware of the mili- 
tary atmosphere. The hall was deco- 
rated with Bags, M.P.'s were standing 
guard, and there were uniforms of 
every kind and rank, many smelling 
of moth balls. We discovered that fel- 
low who's in our English class was a 
Lieutenant in the Air Corps and that 
other fellow who is always in the "C" 
Store was in the Navy. The R.O.T.C 
boys and the A.S.T.R.I'.'s were there 
in their familiar uniforms and, yes, 
men in real true tuxedoes. It's been 
a long, long time that we've been wait- 
ing for tuxedoes to appear at a col- 
lege formal. 

Hut, the men weren't the only ones 
to be noticed; the girls were like Cin- 
derellas — from sweaters and bobby 
sox to silver and gold shoes and long 
flowing gowns. With the strains of 
music, dancing couples and the flicker 
of the crystal ball, thoughts of classes, 
exams, and studies were the last 
things in the world to be connected 
with this wonderful college life. Ex- 
pectant hearts beat a little faster as 
slips of paper were handed out and 
girls were nominated to be in competi- 
tion for Honorary Colonel. When the

Proposed New War Memorial 


Group Led By 
John de Merchant 

Under the auspices of the MSC 
Concert Association, the American 

Trouhadors will appear here on Thurs- 
day) January 24th, at K:(MI p.m. in 
Bowker Auditorium. The Troubadours, 
a unique group composed of a mixed 
quartet accompanied by guitar or 
piano, has within itself individual art- 
ists, each well known in opera, con 
cert, radio, and films: John I>e Mer- 
chant, director narrator; Mary Ed- 
wards, soprano; Alan Werner, tenor, 
and Graham Forbes, pianist. 

The Troubadours present songs 
that have universal appeal, toasja that 
run the gamut from folk music and 
blues, to "art" songs by Americans 
who have captured the native scene 
in music. Their program will consist of 
souks by early Americans like Francis 
Hopkinaon and William Millings, and 
moderns like John Alden Carpenter, 
William Oram Still, and Roy Harris. 

Tin Pan Alley shows up in their 
programs via representatives such as 

George Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Cole 
Porter, Sigmund R o s sh er g, and others 
who know how to send their audience 
home humming a tune. Represented 
also, will be Mexico, South \merica, 
and Canada in a "Salute to our Good 


To complete the picture of original 
American music, the Trouhadours in- 
clude in their program a group of 
piano improvisations in jazz as a ges 
lure to the "bobby sockers", and as a 
tribute to America's most original con- 
tribution to musical literature, which 
i bey feel, when presented in a proper 
light, is a highly creative form. 

The American Troubadours are out 
standing, not only as a group of art 

ists, hut each individual deserves 

mention in bis own right. John lie 
Merchant, baritone, is a graduate of 
the University of Washington where 
he was director of the Men's Glee 
Club. Me has toured Alaska and a 
great part of the United States. Dur- 
ing his travels he collected folk music, 
and his collection includes many un- 
usual examples of Americana. After 
singing some of these American songs 
in Madison Square Garden, he decided 
to form the American Troubadours be 

cause of the tremendous ovation those 

songs received, 

Graham Forbes, pianist, has a 
unique style of playing which is prob- 
ably the result of having played with a 
symphony orchesira, and at the same 
time, sitting in on "jam sessions" 
wherever he had the opportunity. Mr. 
Forbes has played with such promi- 
nent hands as Woody Merman, Charlie 
Barnett, and Mark Warnow, followed 

by engagements at the Cepaeabana, 

Savoy Plaza, and the Capitol Theatre 
in New York. 

Mary Edwards, the blonde soprano 
of the Troubadours, graduated from

How To Be Collegian Editor 

For the past seven semesters, «>ur main extra-curricular activity 
has been the Collegian. For the past two semesters, we have served 
as Editor. We now feel that, In turning over the leadership of what 
we affectionately call NeweU's Rag, wecan be of some service to 
the nexl Editor, and can give the campus some useful information, 
in describing the Royal Road To Editorial Sun-ess. Here, then, are 
the principle.- that should be followed: 

1. Believe everything anybody tells you. Even if you don't think 
Whal you are told sounds logical, print it. You can always print a 
retraction the next week if more than three people are killed in the 
ensuing riots. 

2 II yon believe in something say nothing about It. Whether you 
support or fight something someone else has said or done, you'll 
be wrong. At least, i!" anyone thinks you're right, he won't say so. 

::. Ron the newspaper itself autocratically. This will give a great 
Klise of power and all staff members will he relieved of respon- 
sibility. Of course, it will be after you've left that the new staff 
will be in a complete muddle about Collegian affairs. 

4. (Jive no heed to the faculty adviser. This is an exception to 
No. 1, mentioned because the faculty adviser was picked for the 
job on consideration of his lack of talent for it. He only edits one 
periodical and advises to three, also dabbling occasionally in the 
education of high school journalists throughout the western part 
of Massachusetts. Iiesides, Dr. Goldberg has only been associated 
with the college for 22 years, so he can't be expected to have 
learned what you have in three years. 

5. P«y no attention to the Business Manager or Business Advis- 
er. What do you care what the budget calls for? Print as many 
issues and as many pages as you like. Let the Business Board drive 
itself crazy looking for money; that's what they're there for— to 
give you a free hand. So what if the last ten issues are one page 
each (and advertisements)? 

<>. Consider your position an important and responsible one. Not 
that anyone else on campus will think you have any important 
responsibilities or can be a force for good or evil, but it helps to 
dream :i little. 

7. Print all news items coming to your office. It may not seem 
so to you, but it is definitely important that one of last year's; 
graduates is the niece of an alumnus of '22. Also a certain club's I 
purposes should be reprinted every week, especially since those 
active now number fifteen. 

8. Never, never write an editorial that, like this one, is supposed 
to be ironical; of the very few who read editorials, only a few, 
again, w ill recognize the irony.

rumors that full college credit would

Vet in spite of all these important 
factors, leaving the program is no! 
a tep to be taken lightly as has been 
the case don't quit just because 

you- best buddy is going. Remember, 
there are only six more weeks to go 
before the second term ends anyway. 

Th reasons that movie: -wid other 
amusements give servicemen special 
prices is that they realize that mem- 
bers of the armed forces get little 
pay in comparison to civilians. The 
VST.I' J'.'s get no pay at all. Yet 
when Conrad Thihault appeared at 
Bowker, A.S.T.R.P.'s who inquired 
were told, "No special prices for 
you— $1.20 same as any non-college 
people who wish to attend." Thanks 
a lot! 

Well in just two short weeks the 
first company will he leaving Mass. 
State— some for active duty; others, 
for their third term at Norwich. 
There should he quite a pay old party 
when they go. Maybe they ought to

The A.S.T.R.P.'s have organized an 
inter-platoon basketball league and 
they've been making pood use of the 

eage on the nighta that the college 
isn't using it. Of course, the boys 
are seriously handicapped by lack of 
practice time. Nevertheless, perhaps 
the stars of the league might be 
organized into an all-star team which 
could play such teams as Mass. State,

Even though the Atomic age has 
produced no great bang on campus 
(as yet) (the physics department is 
agitating for a new building for more 
than one reason) the Age of Men 
will probably rip the college up and 
down. Incidentally that seems to be 
the favorite occupation of more than 
one walking deadhead on campus. 
Nothing personal of course. 

If the phantasmagoria of life is 
leaving you like a wet dishrag, I know 
that the thought of finals will wring 
you dry. 

The ski enthusiasts are about ready 
to donate the slats for a bonfire be- 
fore some big game. The weather now 
promises snow for three days before 
Winter Carnival, and rain two days 
later (naturally).

I think they mean limited iji the num-

the girls here can possibly be limited. 
Being finally a senior is one of the 
worst fates at this particular moment 
that could befall one. A few have even

Well, here it is. Senior senility has 

finally eaoght up with us. Yep, we'n 

leaving this cold, cruel campus world 

for that kinder one Outside. Perhaps 

that is why we've decided that a 

college career is like life on a shoot-

get on it that the whole ride is over. Hasting's 

^ j ii l i e Beautv Bar 

Question : does college take you for ' 

a ride? Send all answers to your 

favorite high-school for the use of 

their debating teams. After they get 

through deciding the future of the 

world with and without compulsory 

military conscription, they might want 

a good subject 

And if you, our cherished readers, 
feel the need for a good subject for 
a bull-session some night when you 
should be studying for finals, why not 
try to account for the Senate constitu-

said document, but for the fact that 
they have the power to do a job on 
us. We won't question whether or 
not you've read it. Scared? However, 
before you're forced to leave the 
hallowed halls, take one good look at 
the Special Powers clauses. 

We have recently gained the con- 
cession on teething-rings so that we 
may distribute them to the vandals 
among us who destroy other people's 
property and our reputation. Or isn't 
that included under Special Powers? 

With hope in our hearts and our 
hearts in our mouths, we are counting 

on the influx of veterans, working 

A second conclusion drawn, hi 
of no less importance than the fi 
is that a very small minority of stu-i 
dents are making themselves obn v 
ious, and are hindering the adva 
ami expansion of Mass. State, which 
can be very detrimental to the efforts 
of those who are putting a lot 
time and work into the betterment oi

the proposed University status. 

Suffice it to say that if those imli 
viduals, both in and out of uniform, 
who are still in the street corner

tion and responsibility now, it i$" 
better for them to leave, for th 
college is no place for them. A won} 
of warning is worth a pound of cure.

longer adequate in size for many of 
the college dances, and the facilities 
if the College Store likewise became 
inadequate. The store was moved to 
forth College about 12 years ago. 

Following the end of World War II 

the alumni officers and directors gave 

(long and careful consideration to 

rhat might be the most fitting and 

impropriate, and most useful living 

tentorial to the men of the College 

rho gave their lives in this last world 


It was concluded that the most 

Judical and fitting solution would bf 

• ident union, which would embrace 

}he facilities already afforded, in 

part, by Memorial Hall and which 

rould extend these facilities to the 

bnd that they would be adequate for 

\hc needs of the college student body. 

President Baker and the College 

rustecshave approved this plan; and 

^he proposal has been greeted with 

neat favor by both students and 


The new building would include a 
Sance hall to accommodate at least 
BOO couples; the College Store and 
nrber shop, a student rumpus room 
I •■■! snack bar would be located in 
t ew union. 

The project would never have been 
kecepted by the Alumni if it had been 
[fit that any addition to Memorial 
Jail would mar the architectural 
[harm of the present building. Profes- 
w James Robertson, Jr. was asked 
study the problem; and he drew 
h> a set of sketches which show that 
ne proposed new structure will not 
Inly enhance the usefulness of Mem- 
rial Hall but will also add to its 
leauty and interest 

orials to fallen warriors and living 
victors. Age to age has seen room 
added to room in producing palaces 
from castles; and small oratories have 
become inspiring cathedrals. 

"In proposing a solution for enlarg- 
ing the present Memorial Hall, which 
has represented tribute to the memory 
of the heroes of the First World 
War, it is not our purpose just to 
"enlarge" or "add to" an existing 

"If, as so many of the veterans of 
this war have assured us — -if the 
present struggle was a continuation of 
that other, then what more logical 
solution could be undertaken than to 
commemorate the efforts of father and 
son together in one building as a liv- 
ing and active shrine to that memory? 

"Therefore, we have considered the 
present building, not as a complete 
whole, but rather as an element, an 
integral part of a new and larger 
structure where there is no "addition" 
but a unification of aims and ideals 
into a more suitable and finer struc- 
ture than now exists. 

"In keeping with this joining to- 
gether it seems entirely fitting that 
a memorial room in some key position 
should make such a union possible. 
Such a room can be placed in a tower 
let into the corner between the two 
arms of the new building — signifying 
what a tower has always signified, 
whether as a watch tower to sound a 
tocsin in time of danger, or simply 
a place of lofty contemplation — a 
tower overlooking in turn a memorial 
and really living tribute in a proposed 

"This tower, which will take the 
place of the present memorial room,

they at last proved that the real rea-

is merely that the rules state that nice

o'clock on Saturday nights and those 
who get in at one minute after twelve 
deserve a demerit. But this dance 
lasted until one o'clock so each girl

other article. 

There will be a person in each 
dorm in charge of the drive, where a 
receiving station will be set up. Help 
from anyone who would be willing 
to mend will be much appreciated, 
and such person! should contact Mrs.

be sessions on almost every phase of 
outdoor recreation and four new

Thibault Great Success

he confided to the Tress, "especially

Professor Ellert of the German 
Department acts as liaison officer 
between Westover Field and a group 
of lecturers who have expressed their 

willingness to participate in the iv 
education of German POWs at w 
over Field. 

The committee includes one profes-

We had just seen Conrad Thibault 
demonstrate his versatility, and a^ain 
justify bis reputation as one of the 
most glorious baritone voices in the 
country, by his inspired rendition of 
twelve selections ranging from an 
aria from the opera ll> r<><li<i<le, to 
leading the audience in "Look For the 
Silver Lining 1 *. Now we wanted to 
check on the many reports of his 
charming personality; we were to find 
that the intellectuality, humor, and 
down-to-earthness of the program he 
had just presented were the only 
possible products of this versatile 

While awaiting further develop- 
ments, Mr. Thibault began to express 
his opinion as a professional upon 
the full enjoyment of music by ama- 
teurs. "If people just open their minds 
and hearts," he said, "something is 
sure to creep in. If they really want 
to learn to appreciate music, they 
can do so by listening repeatedly to 
good records, and reading simple 
books on the subject. Knowledge of 
music does definitely make it more 
enjoyable — but, of course, you can 
know too much, too. (Your reporter 
hastened to assure him that she could 
never be accused of this.) Music must 
be regarded as a whole, and its vari- 
ous components judged accordingly." 
Thus Mr. Thibault showed in his 
interview as well as his concert that

great number of the I'OWs are Afri- 
ca Corps men, and they, as well as 
the others, are terrified, according 
to Mr. Ellert, at the idea of h.-ing 
sent to work in Russia. Their main 
aim is therefore, to enlist American 
sympathies on their side. 

During the last month, some one 
hundred and fifty prisoners have al- 
ready been returned home, and more 
will leave this month. When they 
are all gone, it can only he ho p ed that 
the ideas which they are given dur- 
ing this rehabilitation course will fall 
on fertile ground and will contribute 
to make sound -minded men.

lover of music. 

At this point in the conversation, 
the "further developments" arrived 
back stage in the form of a horde of 
autograph seekers, old acquaintances, 
and well-wishers. Thanking one fan 
for the pencil which she let him take 
as a souvenir of her, Mr. Thibault 
began signing his name to several 
dozen programs, while he chatted 
pleasantly with an old friend about 
a pig that had just been killed. 

"Aha!" he interupted himself. In- 
dicating a blot on one of the pro- 
grams, "Is that a tear-drop?" 

Finding that it was only an ink- 
blot he continued his task of auto- 
graphing. Suddenly all were startled 
by a cry-— was it rage, or disappoint- 
ment? — "What? Jimmy Wragg's 
daughter here, and she didn't come 
back to see me?" Taking the program 
handed to him, he wrote: "To Janie--

On the sports scene, basketball does 
not cover the entire picture. For the 
past two weeks the semi-formal track 
team under the guidance of Coach 
Derby has been working hard fash- 
ioning a one mile relay team that 
will be sent to Boston to compete in 
the B. A. A. games on Feb. 9. At 
present the leading candidates for 
this relay event are: Don Parker, 
anchor man on winning teams in '42 
and '43; George Rower, former run- 
ner and letter man in baseball; Bill 
Hawse, cross country star; "Deacon" 
Jones, freshman; Clark and Damon, 
Stockbridge lads; and Sherwood Da-

At present plans for regular spring 
Track Meets are being formulated. 
Home and home meets with Amherst, 
W.P.I. , and Trinity are in the offing 
In addition plans for holding an East- 
Intercollegiate Meet in which we 
would compete are being formulated.

Senior Reminisces About Happenings 
Of Past Four Years On MSC Campus 

by Flit)! Johnston 

in the fall of '12, "midst the rustle 
of railing leave*, the class of '>< ; 
arrived <>n campus, greeted by profs, 
proctor*, and the football team get- 
ting warmed up for its first game. 

After a full week Of mental tests, we 

stood by to watch the influx of upper- 

classmen, and thing! started rolling 

Bight o'clock classes at 8 :(».">, the 
freshman reception, then basing week 
with maroon caps and white herets, 

serenading at '-awn, th( ' ,ope nuU 

and pond party, all helped to make 
us worthy members of the college 
family. Now came football names 
(with Chapel chimes after I victory), 
soccer panics and track events, and 
sorority and fraternity rushing was 
well underway. 

Convocation with all exits guarded 
by stalwart braves of the Maroon 
Key. then a rush for tbe Collegian 
with the familiar inter-collegiate sec- 
tion which was discontinued in '43. 

Compulsory phys. ed. for the coeds 
compared to ROTC for the men with 
their polished boots and blue lapels, 
formall and Informala, round-robin 
"vie" parties and blue lights, con- 
certs by the men's and women's glee 
clubs, the College Store with male 
clerks only, fraternity hell-week were 

all normally accepted as part of cam- 
pus life. 

Then came the report of a lowered 
draft age, and enlistments in the ERC 
with the hope Of finishing college. But 
it was a downcast group that came 
forth from a special convocation for 
men students in February, all waving 
their order! to report for active duty 
on March 1st. Soon after they had 
left, the ."»8th College Training 1 n- 
tachment flew into their barracks 
at Thatcher and Lewis. 

About the same time, an ASTRF 
unit arrived at Amherst College to 
study meteorology. Miss Skinner's 
office was kept busy making out USO 
cards, and many free evenings were 
■pent entertaining and being enter- 
tained by these servicemen. USO 
functions, the . r ,8th CTD band, and 
Retreat at sunset became major 
events for the rest of the semester. 
After commencement a number of the 
students returned for their first 
summer session — some to accelerate, 
and some just to catch up to the real 
Of the class. 

Returning in the fall, the '4<>ers 
found the dismounted cavalry trans- 
ferred to the infantry, and graduat- 
ing to long pants. An increased coed 
enrollment, coeds jerking sodas in 
the C-store, the .">8th breaking records 
on the obstacle course, a Navy unit 
at Amherst College, all presented & 
bright picture for the "Silly Sophs". 

Special attention was called to the 
changes on page 2 of the Collegian. 
A new "Servicemen's Column" came 
from the busy pen of Joe Kunces, and 
soon became most widely read and 
appreciated. Marge Stanton had taken 
over Jobn Hick's "Peanut Gallery*, 

but when she left there were no eligi- 
ble heirs to cany it on Coediting 

was continued by Ruthie Sperry, while 
Carol Goodchild created "Itonkeydust" 
in her "Sidelines" column. 

Many sophs moved into Sorority 
How and double deck bunks, and 
joined the fireside bridge games. A 
new local, beta Delta, was founded, 
while Phi Zeta and Alpha Lambda 
Mu were initiated into Kappa Alpha 
Theta and l*i Beta i'hi respectively. 
Elaine Schultz was chosen "Sweet- 
heart of the 58th" at the Cadet-coed 
formal, and later was crowned Queen 
at Winter Carnival. After Carnival 
came Spring floods, finals and com- 
mencement, and the departure of the 
birdmen, and the beginning of the 
second summer school. 

Campus welcomed a new Army 
group- — the Acers — during July, and 
had them all established before the 
opening of the fall semester. For the 
second year, coeds were housed in 
fraternity houses, and some of the 
sororities also leased fraternity 
houses — having moved the College In- 
firmary out of Phi Sig where it had 
been the year before. Beta Delta was 
initiated into Sigma Kappa, and 
lived in Kappa Sig. 

In the ColUuiini, Jerry Shea and 
Don Smith took over the Servicemen's 
column, "Mac" McCarthy wrote Co- 
editing, and CO. and the Season 
wrote "Statement" to replace Side- 

Doric Alviani was one of the lead- 
ers in bringing a concert series to 
State. The College Store was the 
scene of many happy meetings with 
former classmates home on furlough. 
After the exodus of the Navy, a 
group of Pic-West Point cadets came 
to Amherst College but left again 
early in March. 

Later in the spring, quantitative 
analysis proved a most interesting 
course- — everyone out collecting sam- 
ples form the college pond for water 
analysis. A row around the pond, or 
a hike to see where that brook came 
from made the course really worth 
four credits. Then more finals, an- 
other commencement, and summer 
school along with a new ASTRP unit.

With college getting back to normal,

, '1 Dr. Haller, assistant professor 
of economics, and Dr. Sperling, assis- 
tant research professor in the depart- 
ment of veterinary science, have been 
newly appointed to the Massachusetts 
State College staff. 

Professor Richard Mowry Colwell, 
for the past two and one half years 
has been a captain in the Air Corps. 
He enlisted in August, 1943 and rapid-

at the University of Wisconsin, Madi- 
son. Later he was at several Texas 
airfields and more recently at Langley 
Field, Virginia. 

Dr. William Haller, Jr. received 
his R. A. degree with honors in eco- 
nomics at Amherst College in 193f> and 
his M. A. at Columbia in 1938. He has 
completed the course requirements 
for his Ph.D. at Columbia and his 
dissertation is now in progress. 

From 1989 to 1941, Dr. Haller was 
an instructor in history and economics 
at Tulane University, New Orleans, 
and from 1941 to 1943 an instructor 
in economics at the University of Ver- 
mont. In 1943, he joined the Navy as 
a lieutenant and served during the 
last two years of the war as command- 
er of Navy guard on merchant ships. 

Dr. Francis George Sperling's im- 
mediate work in the department of 
veterinary science will be research in 
infectious bronchitis. 

Dr. Sperling took his premedical 
work at Pennsylvania State College 
starting in 1930 and he transferred 
to the University of Pennsylvania in 
1939 where he graduated in 1943 with 
the degree of veterinary medicine 

Following graduation, he was ap- 
pointed a research associate in animal 
pathology at the University of Penn. 
where he remained until joining MSC. 
Dr. Sperling is a member of the Amer- 
ican Veterinary Association, Pennsyl-

The MSC Ski club is now a member 
of the United States Eastern Ski 
Association, for the 1945-46 season.

gional director of the ski patrol and 
also the author of a book on skiing. 

Recently five members of the club, 
Jean Swenson, Bill Stowe, Bob Lowell, 
Wally Young and Orman Glazier 
passed the "Third Class Proficiency 
Test" under the U.S. Eastern Ski As- 
sociation which now qualifies them to 
try out for the "Time Trials". 

Several members of the Ski Club 
enjoyed a three day ski trip to Peter- 
borough, New Hampshire between 

The next trip planned by the Ski 
Club is to Chickley Alps in the Berk- 
shires. This will take place on Sunday. 
February 17. 

The weekend of the Winter Tar- 
nival will mean skiing competition 
between the men and women of MSC 
There will be a downhill race (back 
of Thatcher) for men and 'men; a 
slalom race, also for men and women: 
a cross Hill Race, for women only. 

The next meeting of the Ski Club

Winter Carnival 

Who's Who 

Bal^ Sports, Teas, 
Are Feature Events 

The Grand Plan for the greatly 

anticipated Winter Carnival, to take 
place Feb. 21-28, has at last been com 
pleted by an exhausted but triumphant 
committee; it includes: a preliminary 
poster contest, a skating exhibition, 
Ski Hoot Danes, track meet with the 
University of Conn., judging of enow 
sculptory, the Carnival Ball, ski 
competition, and sorority Round Rob 
ins. Now in your own individual plans, 
we advise that you make it your first 
step to buy a ticket to the Ball ($8.60 
per couple) from one of the commit- 
tee members, as they have the only 
800 available. 

Those entering the contest must 
have their posters in by tomorrow. 
Entries will be judged by Mrs Whip 
pie, Mrs. Lester Giles, and Dr. Robert 
son, and the winner will be announced 
in next week's Collegium. 

The Carnival itself will begin 
Thursday evening, Feb. 21, with a 
performance on the College Pond by 
the Ice Birds, a well-known semi- 
professional club of skaters from 
Springfield. Following the show there 
will be general skating for those 
hardy enough to remain outdoors, and 
an informal Ski Boot Dante in Mem 
Hall, with refreshments of hot ehoCO- 
late, for the weaklings.

Vets Encounter 
Crowded Facilities 

The senior's tales of the "good old 
college days" when they were fresh- 
men are once again becoming a reality. 
With 2<i:{ more veterans on campus 
this se m ester tbe "<"' store is really 

bussing, classes are filled to over- 
flowing ami the campus is more alive 
than it has been for several years. 

To 126 of these veterans It's just 
coming home to k r et back to MSC. Of 
the l.'lT new students, 80 are enrolled 
as regular students and f>7 arc taking 
a refresher' course in English, Math 
and History. The 12d men who WOTS 

former students here represent seven 

classes, one from the class of 'II. Ill 
from the class of '48, 2t» from the 
(dass of '11, .'{('> from the class of Mf>, 
86 from the class of 'Hi and three 
from the class of '47. 

These veterans have come back 
to college after serving in every 

branch of the service. The greatest 
number wen- in the Army Air Corps, 
US In all, 106 vara In the Army, 25 
in the Navy, 12 in the Marines, three 
were in the R.C.A.F. and later in the 
United States Army, one in the Navy 
Air Corps and one in the Maritime 
Service. Not all the returned veterans 

are men, there is one returned Wave 
and one A rmy nurse. 

7o of those in the Army were Ml 
geants, . r >2 were Lieutenants, 17 were 
corporals, .'U I'fcs., 11 flight officers, 
nine air cadets and six privates. In 
the Navy six were Lieutenants, four 
were ensigns, several were cadets and 
radio men ami fire controlmen. 

Des pi te the fact that school is uet 
ting back to normal, living conditions 
are in somewhat of a mixed up state 
with girls living in some of the 
fraternity houses and civilian men 
sharing the Abbey with ASTRF's, 
men sleeping in the dining rooms 
of the few frat houses that 
have been left to them. Of the 21o' 
single students and 47 married stu- 
dents who enrolled this semester only 
!H are living on campus. The eollege 
was able however with the efforts of 
Mr. Donald Caddigan and the aid of 
Mr. George H. Crockwcll, chair man of 
the Rotary Club Housing committee 
who gave 100 per cent of his time, to 
place '■'•'■'< of the married couples and 
ISO of the single students in private 
homes. 20 of the householders had 
never taken students before and it

Collegian Policy 

••The two main functions of a student publication are chron- 
[cle all( , eomment/' This statement is taken from a recently- 
published article by Dr. Max 11 GoldbergOH "Student Journalists 
and Democratic Leadership" Now, as a new Collegian hoard sets 
(M1 , ,,„ fche j^ f publishing one issue a week tor the next tWO 

semesters, is a suitable time to discuss these ideas ... regard to 
Collegian policy. 

First of all the Collegian is a bulletin of student opinion: 
your opinion, our opinion, and the administration's point of view. 
Movements discussed openly or felt on campus cannot fail to 
arouse comment in it. We can of f er challenges far beyond generally 
accepted practice and thought, but as a rule we must remain in 
Close relationship with student sentiment. Thus it is really the ( Ol- 
lege that makes the Collegian, for as a student publication it re- 
flects as a mirror, the best and worst ideas prevalent among the 
Btudent body. In order to do these things fully we must have other 
Ideas besides our own. This is the main function oi the Letters 
t,, the Editor" column. There has been a surprising lack oi such let- 
ters lately in comparison with the many changes now being af- 
fected, and the student agitation along so many lines. Let us know 
what you are thinking. It will help us both. 

The Becond responsibility of the Collegian is to report college 
activities accurately. Here too we need help. Though our stall oi 
reporters is large and competent, it inevitably misses some news. 
Unfortunately the Collegian staff, too. has courses to attend, 
quizzes to take, and averages to make, and can't spend all its time 
ferriting out news. We are .mt blowing our own horn when we 
mate that Collegian work is the most time and effort consuming 
of all extracurricular activities at MSC. Therefore, when your 
organization is planning something special, let us know about it too. 
The only requirement is that the information he in our hands at 
least by five o'clock on the Tuesday preceding the issue it is to 
appear in. Unless special arrangements have been made, we can 
give no guarantee of publishing material received after this time 
VYY have heard through various channels that some organiza- 
tions and faculty members feel that in the past they have not had 
adequate coverage in the Collegian, and that their stories have 
been unfairly discriminated against. Such charges are, to our 
knowledge, completely unfounded. Stories rushed into our office 
at ten o'clock on Tuesday evening can't he expected to !>«■ received 
with open arms, and certainly can't receive the consideration they 
deserve. We regret such incidents as much as the would-be 
authors, and sincerely hope that all such misunderstandings may 
he avoided in the future. 

The Collegian and the student body have many hopes for the 
year now beginning. The college has gone part way towards its 
goal of becoming the University of Massachusetts. There are 
many more things to be accomplished, slowly, but surely. When 
MSC has become a university with all the necessary additions to 
staff and equipment, when the collegian Quarterly is on its own 
with a separate apportionment from the student taxes, when the 
library is flooded with light and opened longer, then we shall feel 
that the College and the Collegian are well launched on the long- 
term aims we haw in mind now, at the beginning of a new year.

Something which had been discu 
early last fall with the Administration 

has finally come to pass, the allevia- 
tion of the traffic pro m on North 

Pleasant street. For years the traf fie 

which has buzzed down through 
fraternity row and campus has been 
a constant threat to the lives of pedes- 
trians. It took a few accidents ami 
deaths to gel something done about 

it, but thanks is now extended to the 
powers that he and the town of Am- 
herst for the erection of warning 
signs ami two caution signal flashes 

at danger points. 

However, the .situation of one side- 
walk on fraternity row is still unrem- 
edied and students arc urged to use 
the sidewalk on the Kast side of the 
street for walking. 

It might he well if some of the driv- 
ers with heavy feet would let up on 
the gas also. Offenders are not limited 
to campus by any means, hut some 
drivers better check again on the laws 

governing Motor Vehicles in Massa- 
chusetts and find out what a flashing 
yellow light indicates.

it in this issue.

i In the February 3 issue of the 

m Sunday Globe the following 

uticle by Louis M. Lyons, an alum- 

| of MSC, appeared, bearing the 

•aption "G. I. Rush to Colleges Causes 

Acute Crisis". Because of its interest 

the faculty and students of MSC,

■ it. 

The crisis of the veteran and the 
illege is coming to a head rapidly 
Hid is bringing very unpleasant re- 

The veteran is finding that cash- 
in- in his G. I. rights is not as easy 
Bj it looked. 

Passing a law was not enough. The 
ollegea haven't room for the legion 
, eterani seeking admission. The 
iollege towns haven't housing for 
i Many veterans are having their 
difficulties with the college require* 
Some of this was unavoidable. You 
pack in only so many people in 
my one place. Some of it looks like 
lark of planning. Some of it seems al- 
nost like insufficient interest to do 
the job as well as it might be done. 
The crisis appears to be more 
icutfl in Massachusetts than in most 
laces. This at first seems strange, 
Massachusetts has so many col- 
li lis. But that is part of the reason. 
Veterans from many states seek 
elmission at the nationally known 
rol leges here. , 

Another part of the reason is that 
lassachusetts always has provided 
lesi publicly supported college educa- 
tion than any other state. Her famous 
tndowed colleges are filled largely 
ith out-of-state students in propor- 
mnning from r>0 percent at Bar- 
yard to 8 percent at Williams. 

Cottage* Are Overwhelmed 
So at a time when these colleges 
ire overwhelmed, Massachusetts has a 
reiv limited State College for her 
iwn Bay State veterans to fall back 
mi. They have had 4000 veterans ap- 
jly at the State College in Amherst. 
rhey had to set a limit at 1000, and 
say to most of the 1000 that their 
pviptance was provisional upon the 
.legislature providing the necessary 
icrease in facilities and teaching 
taff. It has not yet been provided. 

M seems never to have occurred 
p the Legislature that this should 
utvfi been provided in advance to meet 
pis veterans' pressure. 
Out in Harold Stassen's state of 
■t a, where 12,000 or more stu- 
Icnts normally attend the State Uni- 
knity, which makes almost a city of 
ts'lf, the problem of expanding to 
ike on a certain number of thousand 
|eterans is far less difficult than in 
small state college that has sub- 
Ited on near starvation appropria- 
ble all its 80 year history.

r education for women is even 

cute than for men in Massachu- 


best-known women's colleges 

sachu setts have three- fourths 

tenths of their students from 

' f-state. To a local girl from a 

income family their cost is pro- 

It means the difference be- 

\ ?l r »0 tuition at the State Col- 

and ?500 to $600 at a private col- 

rr The total cost for a year could 

as little as $600 at the State Col- 

lege and hardly less than $1300 to 
$18U0 at the private colleges. 

If the state authorities had planned 
ahead a little the $1,500,000 revenues 
of the State College, in the last couple 
of years while the Army was using its 
facilities, might have been used to 
make provision for the avalanche of 
veterans now applying. Instead the 
college was not permitted to apply to 
maintenance and repairs even the 
$70,000 specifically paid by the Army 
in that category. Bight now the col- 
lege has a critical financial problem 
to take advantage of the opportunity 
to secure Federal housing units avail- 
able for 250 unmarried and 100 mar- 
ried students. It requires $00,000 to 
get the housing and unless the Legis- 
lature takes emergency action, it will 
lose this chance. That is, the veterans 
will lose their chance. 

Miating A Good Change 

The government is missing a 
chance to help the state colleges pro 
vide for veterans. It will pay up to 
$500 for a veteran. The private col- 
leges collect all this. But the state 
college tuition is only $160. If the 
government made the other 8850 
available to the state colleges it would 
go far toward providing the emer- 
gency facilities and staff increases 
they need. Getting it out of state 
Legislature takes so long that it 
appears likely to cost veterans a 
year of waiting after the war has 
already cost them three to five years. 

It is this three to five years' back- 
log of students that is licking the 
colleges' attempt to meet the veterans' 
demand Had there been no G. I. bill, 
the colleges still would have appli- 
cants coming on them all at once now 
who normally would have been spread 
over three to five years. Harvard's 
single graduate school of arts and 
sciences has admitted 800 out of 8000 
applicants for the term opening this 
week. Her other schools have similar 
statistics. M. I. T. has been receiving 
3000 applications a month. 

These of course are impossible de- 
mands. Many of the applicants ought 
to be going somewhere else. Many will. 
Some are trying the state colleges and 
finding them just as jammed. 

Planning and provision for veterans 
has been just as much "too little and 
too late" at some of the wealthy pri- 
vate institutions as those that have to 
wait on Legislatures for appropria- 

It seems never to have occurred to 
some college administrators that in 
three to five years many soldiers 
would take wives to double the hous- 
ing demands. 

Some Colltf/t M a keshif t* 

There is a limit to the pressure of 
public demand upon a private col- 
lege. But they would all admit some 
public responsibility. They did in the 

These veterans are the same fel- 
lows. The range of special provision 
for veterans among the colleges as 
found in an Associated Press survey 
varies greatly. 

Williams has taken over a hotel 
for accommodations 

Brown has made a barracks of the 

M.I.T. is erecting 100 prefabri- 
cated family units. 

Dartmouth has converted two dor- 
mitories for married students and is 
building .".0 prefabricated houses. 

Norwich has installed 25 trailers. 

Yale has put 200 Quonset huts to 


Rhode Island is using Quonset huts 
for 330 veterans. 

They are using trailers at Maine, 
and New Hampshire has 100 families 
in a FPHA project in Portsmouth. 

A deal more could he done than is 
being done in many places to stretch 
accommodations. In the war the gov- 
ernment took over hotels. 

Anybody in any large place can 
point to buildings which could be used 
if any authority with initiative and 
resources went into action. We have 
had enough experience with adult ed- 
ucation so that instruction can he im- 
provised also. The Army established 
a university at Biaritz this summer 
with complete staff and equipment for 
4000 students in hundreds of courses 
in three months. 

Nobodv wants to see the colleges 

inundated to a point that would de- 
stroy the atmosphere and advantage 
of academic life. Many veterans, lack- 
ing preparation for college, need 
training in other institutions The vet- 
erans of this state have a right to 
expect that public authorities will see 
that the utmost is done to make pub- 
lic provision for all qualified student! I 
who cannot be accommodated at the 
private colleges. 

It is bard to believe that this is be 
ing done. The need is more acute here 
because of the long neglect in develop 
ing adequate publicly supported edu- 
cation beyond high school 

Massachusetts is absolutely at tin 
bottom of all the states in per capita 
provision for publicly supported high- 
er education. Whatever can be done to 

extend that provision now, need not 
be regarded as short-term emergency 

expenditure When the need of the 
veterans is met, the many thousands 
a year of Massachusetts boys and 
girls who cannot pay for education at 
a private college would begin to get 
their chance. 



Article By Dr. Goldberg 
In "School And Society" 

The feature article in a recent issue 
of School and Society, professional 
weekly of national circulation among 
American educators, was the article 
"The Humanities and Society", by Dr. 
Maxwell H. Goldberg, assistant pro- 
fessor of English and faculty adviser 
to student publications at Massachu- 
setts State College. 

In this article, Dr. Goldberg urges 
"administrative officers of American 
schools and colleges, as well as others 
sharing responsibility for our educa- 
tional institutions, policies, and pro- 
grams," to give special support, in the 
postwar period, to humanistic and 
other liberal studies; for our com- 
munities need young men and women 
cultivated in these studies; such mem- 
bers enrich the community in which 
they live, and they add quality to its 

Dr. Goldberg's recommendations 
emerge, in great part, from his serv- 
ices on a number of faculty com- 
mittees concerned with curriculum. 
Among them are the Course of Study 
Committee, of which Dr. Goldberg has 
long been secretary; the Committee 
on Revision of Curriculum (1933-34); 
and the Committee on Postwar Needs. 

In adapted form, the same article 
appears in the fall (1944) issue of 
TjIAISON, literary and critical quar- 
terly by and for alumni of Massachu- 
setts State College. Dr. Goldberg is 
chairman of the Committee on Publi- 
cation of LIAISON.

"Mademoiselle" Holds 
Short Story Contest 

"Mademoiselle", monthly magazine 
for women, is now holding its annual 
short story contest for women under- 
graduates. The magazine's purpose in 
running this contest is to reflect the 
students' point of view, and also to 
publish stories by young authors of 
real merit. 

The winning story will be awarded 
$2."0 for all rights, and will be printed 
in the August 1940 issue of "Made- 
moiselle". Should it be impossible to 
determine a single outstanding story, 
$250 will be paid for each published. 

Length of the manuscripts must be 
from 1,500 to 3,000 words. The storie- 
must be marked clearly with the 
author's name and address, type- 
written, and double spaced. 

Entries must be postmarked not 
later than April 1, 1946.

MSC a University l! discussed and 
acted upon. A democratic organise 
tion, it acts upon the democratic 
ideals of the veteran. 

The Veterans' Association in ser\ 
ing the ex-G.I.'s on our campus, is 
not working towards narrow ends by 
narrow means. The V.A., in its stand 
against retrenchment, its campaign 
for the continuation of the twelve 
week summer session, is serving the 
Interest! Of the entire student body. 
Not only is the veteran interested in 
making up for lost time, but others 
in the student body could use the 
summer session to good advantage. 
Certainly this is no time to diminish 
educational facilities, the whole em 
phasis should be on expansion and 


Recognition of the dynamic role of 
the Veterans' Association is embodied 

in the following letter from Governor 

Tobin's office: 

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts 
Executive Department 
State House, Ibiston 
January l. r >, 1841 
Veterans' Association 
Massachusetts State College 
Smith College 
Amherst, Masachusetts 

His Excellency the Governor has directed me to acknowledge receipt of 
your letter of January 8th, with reference to the facilities at Massachusetts 
State College. The Governor desires to express his appreciation for your 
Commendation of his efforts to extend facilities at Massachusetts State Col- 
lege so that a large number of veterans may take advantage of the instruc- 
tions offered there. Vour suggestions for further expansion will lw carefully 

It is the earnest hope of the G o ver nor that Massachusetts State College 
will be second to none in the advantages it makes available for our veterans. 

Very truly yours, 
|s| Frederick W. Roche 
Assistant Secretary to the Governor 

The regular Tuesday evening meet- 
ing of the Association, held in the 
Old Chapel Auditorium was presided 
over by Commander Mob Lowell. 8f> 

Veteran! attended the spirited meet 

ing, and on adjournment, 26 Intel 

rupted their stampede to the exit long 
enough to sign a membership card. 

The relations of the Association 
with other groups on campus, with 
the Administration, and with the 
Alumni were explored by a number 
of speakers. Assistant Professor Troy 
rose to comment on the difficulties 
encountered in the transition from 
Mass. Aggie to MSC. He stressed the 
need for coordination with the work 
of the Alumni Association. It was 
voted that a letter he sent to the 
Alumni Association pledging the co- 

operation of the veterans in the effort 
to make MSC a University. 

An eloquent proposal that the 
Association could best further tin- 
interests of the College by affiliation 
with a national veterans' organization 
was not acted upon. The feeling of the 
group was that such a move would 
tend to split the membership, and 
that extensive study was needed be- 
fore such a serious step was under- 
taken. The drive for the continuation 
of the 12 week summer session was 
placed in the hands of a five man 
committee. In a meeting of the 'pun 
tet after adjournment of the larger 
body, it was decided to carry the 
proposal directly to the students, to 
poll them and accurately guage stu- 
dent opinions.

On Saturday afternoon, February '.», 
thirty-one Mt. Holyoke girls accom-

the form of newspaper, paiama. and 
candle relays. 

The Rlue team was also the winner

Rushing, Initiation 
Rules Fixed For Frat 

Plans for the return of normal 
functions to MSC fraternities, which 
hibernated during the war because of 
the dearth of men on campus are 
going forward and their houses now 
occupied by sororities or as regular 
college dormitories will go back to 
them next fall. 

A joint meeting of the interfrater- 
nitv Council and the Interfraternity 
Committee has drawn up rules for 
rushing, the matching of bids and the 
usual system of preferential bidding, 
to the end that no fraternity getl 
more than its share of freshmen. Each 
fraternity may pledge up to eight 
percent of the eligible freshmen and 
any Dumber of upperclnaemen. 

Formal rushing will be reopened 
March 4 at Stockbridge Hall, where 
the several fraternities will have rep- 
resentatives who may be visited by 
eligible men. An impartial board has 
been chosen to match bids at the end 
of rushing on March 18. 

liecause of unfavorable criticism 
over the country of some aspects of 
informal invitations, it was decided to 
restrict these events to indoors which 
must be held Feb. 14 to 17. Men 
pledged in March will be initiated in 

The fraternity representatives were 
reminded that they should begin con- 
sideration of new house rules for 
iy4<>-47, both because of the high 
standards set by the sororities now 
occupying MOM of the houses and be- 
cause of the opportunity to obviate 
some of the criticism leveled at the

Like MSC? 

The great influx of G. I.'s into 
American universities can be matched 
throughout Europe where reopened 
universities in the liberated lands are 
experiencing unprecedented enroll- 
ments, according to word received 
from the World Student Service Fund 
headquarters. The great state Univer- 
sity of Oslo in Norway is given as an 

Oslo's six thousand students are 
more than double the pre-war enroll- 
ment. These students come from two 
groups, the veterans of resistance, 
captivity, or deportation, and the new- 
comers from the high schools. Those 
from the underground "emerge from 
their covers restless and with worn 
down nerves, unfit for immediate 
studies," due to frightful privations 
and dangers. 

One-half of these students cannot 
find lodgings and are sleeping on cots 
in the gymnasiums of schools in the 
city. Most of the students lack good 
shoes and clothing. Study books in 
foreign languages are greatly needed. 

There is a great shortage of teach- 
ers and classes are unduly large. 
Doctors and dentists are needed in 
great numbers but there are inade- 
quate laboratory and clinical facilities 
for the training of medical and dental 
students. Many students desire to 
study abroad in the difficult post-war 

Eighty Norwegian students have 
come recently to the United States to 
study. Thirty of these have scholar- 
ships secured through the Institute of 
International Education.

Hadley's Economic Life 
Studied By Ec. Majors 

The town of Hadley, a neighboring 
community on the Connecticut River, 
is put under a high-power microscope 
in a study just completed by nine MSC 
students as a part of their work in a 
course on current economic problems 
under the direction of Professor Amy 
Hewes and Dr. Philip L. Gamble, head 
of the department of economics 

The nine students who made the 
study are William Norton, of Am- 
herst, graduate student who is work- 
ing for his master's degree in agricul- 
tural economics; Marjorie Andrew, 
Lois Beurman, Chester Kuralowicz, 
Ruth Reynolds, Violet Zych, and Mary 
Ireland; all of the class of '4f>; Har- 
old Leen, *47; and Ella Mae Parker, 

Tracing the economic life of Hadley 
from early colonial days, the study 
"War Over Old Hadley" shows the 
changing ethnic makeup of the people 
and the changes in transportation 
from the early days of river traffic, 
through the railroad era and down to 
the present day of the motor truck 
and passenger automobile. 

The effect of the war on Hadley 
was profound but on the whole not 
harmful, although various cross cur- 
rents developed. Community efforts to 
win the war bound the people more 
closely than ever before. Hadley fur- 
nished 381 men and women to the 
armed services and several hundreds 
more were attracted to nearby indus- 
trial communities. 

The study concludes th»t, in spite 
of the trend toward large-scale agri- 
cultural production, the small farmer 
who works in Hadley has attained a 
number of definite advantages, most 
of which are related to his war exper- 
iences. These protect his position and

last Collegian appeared on the news 

Stands, ami, as a result, this second 

semester Introductory "sports col 

iiimi" will contain many things that 
have lost then news value so hear 
with us. 

The last "sportscast" contained 

stories of eomlng tilts that have lone 

been forgotten, hut to bring back 
memories of the eventful past the fol- 
lowing took place: on Jan. Hi, the 
State "hoop" team madi the season 

•i successful one bj edging out th 

Lord Jeffs in a closely played contest; 

with the Amherst victory under tl 

belts the Statesmen went on to defeat 

Hamilton College :it Hamilton, ami 
then returned h\ way of Williams 
town to lose to the Little Three kii 
Williams College; this encounter ws 

followed by a home tilt with the I'lliv 
of Vermont which ended in an enemy 
victory. That about brings "sports 

cast" up to date, hut for a summary of 
last Sat. fame with the Boston "ter- 

However, before developing that 

topic a little explanation is needed to 
explain the makeup of the team that 

faced Kuss Peterson's "five". This 
second semester team is practically a 
brand new outfit being composed al 

most entirely of veterans who have 

just enrolled at school. Of the starting 

quintet, there are only two leftovers 
Kneeland and Stanne. These veterans 
comprise two-thirds of a squad of 
eighteen. Well, to gel hack to the B.U. 
game, this new team did very well in 
playing the terriers practically on 
even par, loaing only hy virtue of late 
period field iroals. This present team 

is a vast Impr o vement over last se- 
mester's varsity quintet, and it is 

hoped that Coach Ball Can mold this 

present outfit into a winning combine 

This week will find the State team 
facinir its second grueling encounter 

when it tamdes with a strong, ex- 
perienced outfit from American Inter 
national. This will perhaps he State's 
stiffest game as A.l.f has faced top 
teams and survived with an amazitur 

record of 11 wins against 2 defeats. 

Following Wednesday's game there 

will he a return engagement with 
Hamilton College on Sat. evening. 
This contest should fare hotter than 
the one- with A.l C. The lineups of 
both gamei will be: Kneeland and

and Richardson, at the forward slots; 
and Stanne at the pivot post. The re-

Carnival Events Promise Big Weekend 

Wendell Bradway's Orchestra Featured At Ball Friday; 
Ice Birds To Present Program Of Figure- Skating 

The annual Winter Carnival, th» 
high light of the season at M.S.C., is 
scheduled to begin tonight and con- 
tinue Friday and Saturday with u 
wide variety of sports and sociai 
.vents. Activities will get under way 
this evening at 8 P.M. with a skating 
, vhibition on the College Pond by the 
Springfield Ice Birds, followed by 
general skating on the pond for the 
. rugged individuals, and, for 
those who prefer to take their exer- 
cise indoors, an informal Ski Boot 
1 lance in Memorial Hall, at which the 
rhaperones will be Dr. and Mrs. Har- 
old J Smith, and Prof, and Mrs. 
George Alderman. Refreshments will 
consist of cookies and hot chocolate. 

Events of the Winter Carnival will 
begin tonight with an exhibition on 
the College Pond by the Ice Birds, a 
figure skating club from Springfield. 
The numbers on their program are a r 

First: a solo by Lois Arnold, whom 
many from Springfield will recall as 
a recent member of the Ice Capades 

A pair number by Peggy Bridgeman, 
also of the Ice Capades, and Ray La- 
fond, who was a skater at the Center 
Ice Theatre before he entered the ser- 
vice, will be next. 

Then, there will be a second pair 
number by the "Old Smoothies", 
Harry and Catherine Arnold, Lois' 

Ed "Rubber Legs" O'Flagherty 
also recently of the Center Theatre 
will put on an act and then a solo by 
Ruth Pencense. A varied program will 
complete the entertainment. 

Since there will be no classes to- 
morrow, Washington's Birthday, th" 
day will feature several special events. 
The indoor track meet with the I'm. 

versity of Connecticut will begin at 
2:30 P.M. in the cage. However, the 
prospects for the snow sculpture con- 
test which was to be judged later in 
the afternoon appear dim, unless Na 
tore provides a little more of the raw 
material needed for the affair. Should 
the contest proceed as planned, the 
judges will be Prof. James Robertson, 
Jr., Dr. Vernon P. Helming, and 
Henry L. Varley. 

The climax of the three-day affair, 
the Carnival Ball, will take place 
Friday from i» P.M. to 2 A.M. in the 
Drill Hall with music by Wendell 
Bradway's popular orchestra The 
occasion promises to be a great suc- 
cess with "tickets going like hotcakes", 

Orchestra Leader At Winter Carnival 

I Glee Club Resumes 
Singing Traditions 

by Miriam Biletsky 

As long as there have been men's 
voices on Mass. State (and even Mass. 
Aggie) campus, there has been a 
M.n's Glee Club. We have always 
taken pride in calling ourselves, and 
being known as the singing campus. 
In former years (going back, now, to 
in, '41, '42), the Men's Glee Club 
under the direction of Doric Alviani 
won fame and fortune making appear- 
nces bmth on campus and off. In 
1940-41, the Glee Clubs combined, 
ide a number of recordings in New 
irk. Meanwhile, sweet charity was 
: .• neglected; the club sang at a imm- 
»r of Red Cross benefits and the like. 
n the year 1941-42, the Men's Glee 
Hub gave two concerts, one in Boston 
ad one in New York, for the MSC 
Alumni Association. They sang at the 
, Theatre in Turner's Falls, and 
I the Westfield State Teachers' Col- 
Bge. They went to AIC to sing on the 
mgram which was to introduce the 
IC Glee Club which had just been 
ormed at the time. The same year 
hev took part in a dedication of the 
ISO Building at Fort Devens. 
<'ame the year 1943, and along with 
t, the mass exodus of men. From that 
imp until the beginning of this pres- 
nt semester, there was, with the ex- 
eption of the reorganized Statesmen 
Ml year, a complete lull in men's 
inking activities, and the women took 
barge of most of the musical pro- 
rams on campus. 

Vow, however, with a great number 

returning, the Men's Glee Club, 

fter an absence of two and a half 

will come into its own again. 

nong those who have returned there 

re many who were outstanding in 

he Glee Club. The present director 

t the Men's Glee Club is John 

'adorett, formerly of the class of '45. 

1 'H '42, he acted as business man- 

p r under Doric Alviani. During that 

. he took a course in director- 

rom Mr. Alviani, and is now 

Rg the club. Elliot Swartz, who 

done a great deal of musical work 

is, is the business manager.

Paulette Chapman Wins 
Carnival Poster Award 

Mass. State's talented artist, who 
became the lucky winner in our Win- 
ter Carnival poster contest, is Paulette 
Chapman '48. As a deserved reward 
for her efforts, she has received s 
complimentary ticket to the gala ball 
Friday night. 

Her successful masterpiece can nov 
be seen as the bright spot on the bulle 
tin board in front of North College. 
On a vivid red background, amid 
dancing girls in white lace skirts 
starry snowflakes, the ttumeroui 
events of the Winter Carnival week- 
end are proclaimed in large, whit, 
printing The poster's colorful gaiety 
is certainly suggestive of the 
promised by this forth-cominjj week 

Another competing posti r pai •• 
by Phyllis Brunner has been hung in 
the library. It pictures s eo ed skiing 
merrily downward through the whirl 
of carnival frolics printed on small 
signs along her way. She character 
istically ends her escape f n the 
usual classroom boredom with a turn 
ble in the snow, which will probably 
he the happy, but tired em dition of 
all M.S.c. students as the last dreamy 
waltz is played on Saturday night. 

The judges of this poster contest 
included Mrs. Lester Gili . M s. 

according to B committee member. 
However, if the Initial supply oPtiek- 

Stl runs out, more of them will !)<■ 
made available at the door so that no 
one will he turned away. 

Lending a touch of glamour to the 
occasion will be the traditional choos-

court iluiing the intermission at 11 
o'clock. President and Mrs. Hugh P. 

Baker, Dean and Mrs. William L 
Machmer, Registrar and Mrs. Mar-

and Mr. Robert P. Pane will he pa- 
trons for the ball.

Jack Lively 

Andover, \.H. 

The hit of verse quoted shove will not, in ell possibilities, get into man] 
anthologies of contemporary poetry. Chances are that H may never be seen 

by the important reviewers. The professional critics may even deny that it 
<an DC classed with genuine poetry. In defense, it may be noted that it has 
the contagious swing and rhythm of a sea chanty. The appeal lies chiefly in 
its saltiness, its earthiness. There is a down to earth quality, and while it 
sings the song of the veteran of World War II, the theme was a familiar .un- 
to veterans m far hack as the returning volunteers of Washington's revolv 
tionary army. 

But this is not a column on literary criticism, the merits «>f this poem are 
secondary to the issues it involves, the problems it presents. It happens along, 
very convenient ly, but not at all accidentally. t<. serve as a most opportune 
peg on which to hang a moot point. 

The column appearing in last week's Collegian, our maiden effort, was 
greeted hy a very encouraging response. Nothing gratifies a writer so much 
as the knowledge that he is being read, that he has an audience, that he is 
not merely "bumping his gums". Also, and this was very welcome, a sign 
that the column was Iteing considered seriously and Critically, a reader 
raised an obje ction to some of the contents of the inaugural article. 

His complaint was that he was left with the impression that the article 
treated the veterans as a uniform group, alike in their economic backgrounds] 
and identical in their politics. He vigorously protested against covering all 
the veterans under one blanket, classifying them all under one head. 

If this conclusion .an be drawn from the column, if this is the impression 
with which he reader is left, it is regrei tabl>\ and the writer unhesitatingly 
admits his error. The veterans are not all alike. They arc a cross section of 

America, with all the strata, all the sub-divisions of American society repi 
sented. Incontrovertibly, men and women who wen 'dried from every 

state in :!!>■ Union, who were drawn from evi r\ social class, fam ei tudents, 
trade-unionists, professionals, Negroes, and so on indefinitely, represent 
different backgrounds and have different viewpoints. The outlook of a man 
like .Jack Lively, the author of * he above quoted poe i rtriking trade 
unionist, and that of a corporation executive, is polar in its divergence, even 
though both may be veterans. 

Th differences are marked. They are deep and cannot be overlooked. 
Buft to let the matter real s1 'hat point would be an error of omission. Take 

a coin. Bay a one cent piece. On one side there is 'he familiar- portrayal of 
Lincoln. Would it be correct to describes penny as a copper coin distinguished 

by the picture of the famous president? Obviously, this is only part of the 
truth, only partly accurate. It ■ turn the coin, examine the 

other side and note the inscription on thi e side. And rvith 'he 

ter under- di « ussiori. 

With ail their numerous differences, the product of their lives before and 
after their enrollment in the armed forces, the t conn 

fund of experience, the result of their \ - So many mill: 

have lived 'he same sort of lives, shared th,- rigors and the monotony of 
training, endured the hardship and the peril of combat, 'ha 1 a strong feeling 
of comradeship has developed among the ■ auldron 

of war served as a melting-pot for a great many frozen attitudes and pre- 
judices. The shoulder to shoulder contact served to rub away fa 
builv on hearsay and propaganda. 

On his return, the veteran face- many problems, serious problems, that 
he has in common with other ex-servicemen. The housing shortage, which 
has reached the proportions of a national scandal, is felt keenest hy a tl 
trying to reintegrate himself into civilian life. Clothing, of all types, whether 
shorts, shirts, or suits, has been taken from the scarcity class and placed 
with the plutonium in the rarity category. Unemployment is rampant and

Are You A Rumor-monger? 

The 19 15-46 school year has brought to MSC a new species, com- 
monly known as the rumor-monger. Rumor-mongers can easily 
by recognized bv large zipper lips which are always flapping, and 
by large elastic ears. The most irritating thing about rumor- 
mongers is that they are not the least bit consistent about their 
stories, but elaborate upon them with each telling. Are you an 
active rumor-monger? 

The college is alive with wild tales. Freshman girls sweated 
through their exams under the impression, given by a rumor- 
monger that at least fifty of them were to be flunked out to make 
room for returning veterans. Another popular version of this 
story had it that enough girls of all classes would be dropped to 
vacate all of Butterfield for new students. These stories and others 
similarly fantastic grew and grew, and then as the new semester 
proved them false, burst as over-inflated things always do. 

Second semester finds the rumor-mongers at work with new 
vigor. According to one, the college plans to admit only one hun- 
dred freshman girls next year, while others place the number at 
eighty-five, sixty, or fifty. One especially imaginative member of 
this new species claims to have direct information from authori- 
tative sources who swear that next year MSC will be filled with 
all the veterans who apply, even if upper-class girls must be kicked 
out to make room for them. We have all heard other tales, equally 
groundless and too fantastic to mention. 

If you are a rumor-monger, pull in your elastic ear and zip up 
your lip. Unless you really know what you're talking about, keep 
still. Spreading or listening to unverified rumors can help neither 
you nor the college. 

Now that old man weather has 
fouled m up considerably, it takes 
super human ears to make eomethin i 
out of a lecture. The class room, to * 
casual eavesdropper, might very well 

be a duck pond serenade. This melod- 
ious harmony In honks makes no bones 
about its sincerity. Startling, to sav 
the least. The place is even over- 
crowded with bun, a**** littl( ' sa 
vage* just waiting for the opportunity 
to pounce on some unsuspecting In 
dividual. And here's a hopeful plea 
that we pet some compensation for 

our miseries, hy way of snow-fall. If 

that tempermental old gent reads this 

column that desperate plea wat for 

SNOW-FALL, which is nc* equivalent 
to precipitation, in the language of 

BltierS. We'll leave the chemistry on' 
.if this. 

if some of you more nnfortunate 
folks have had the unwelcome success 
of acquiring text hooks you have my 
sympathy. Well iwap places later, 
but, in the meantime, you're misting 
B pleasant interlude. And speaking of 
missing things, 'tis assumed that M 
one is shedding tears over convocation. 
On the contrary, it makes for happier 
thoughts all around this semester. 
Those mandatory invitations were be- 
ginning to assume a note of brusque 

An off-shoot of spring certainly 
drifted in from out of nowhere this 
past week-end. Half expected to see 
M.S.C.'s prospective bathing beauties 
soaking up the sun-juice It's getting 
along towards March now, and one 
must make the most of every feeble 
ray of sun. So go the upstairs me- 
| chanics of sun fanatics. 

The "C-store" seerrfs to be entering 
that period again — bridge, bridge all 
over the place. It's a hey day for 
kibitzers. Where else can one kibitz, 
three hands at once with a full view 
of the other nine hands— without half 
trying, that is.

Saturday Classes 

Dear Editor, 

MSC begins a holiday, Winter Car- 
nival, a long-awaited event for many, 
if not all, students on our campus. 1 
should like to raise the question of 
Saturday classes for this weekend, 
classes that will come in the midst of 
the Winter Carnival and the holiday 

Does the Dean's office honestly be- 
lieve that students will completely 
prepare assignments for Saturday 
morning? First, and most important, 
the adminstration has backed a stu- 
dent committee which has planned a 
three-day Winter Carnival with ac- 
tivities filling the entire weekend with 
exciting social and sports events. I 
believe that the administration would

Pardon Us 

The Collegian is embarrassed Last week, after what seemed 
due research into the problem, we proclaimed that there was 
absolutely no truth to the story that convocation would henceforth 
be held only every other week. We labeled that one of the many 
rumors circulating around campus. It wasn't a rumor, for just 
one hour before the Collegian was distributed Dean Machmer 
announced that convocation would be held only every other week. 
The Collegian was wrong and we apologize. In the future we'll 
check rumors more carefully too.

and women, downhill for men and 
women and a cross-country open. 
Medals will he awarded the winners. 
If skiing conditions are not satis- 
factory, a large bridge paity will be 
held in Memorial Hall, with bowling 
also featured. 

The closing attraction of the Carni- 
val on Saturday evening will be the 
Round Robin, at which time the so- 
rority houses will be open for semi- 
formal dancing. This occasion will 
provide the newcomers on the campus 
with another excellent opportunity to 
get acquainted with the co-eds. 

The profits from the Winter Carni- 
val, if any, will be set aside for a 
permanent fund to finance a toboggan 
run and other improvements for fu- 
ture affairs. 

Vets' View Continued from page 1 

G.I. Bill are unredeemed promises to many turned-away veterans. 

Now that both aspects of the problem have been faced, we can look at 
the situation in all its phases, we can say that the American veterans, in spite 
of the factors that tend to divide them, have a background of experience in 
the armed forces, and a host of immediate problems, that combine to bring 
them together and to unify them. 

The student committee responsible 
for packing the three-day affair with 
headed by Jim Falvey, contrary to the 
statement made in last week's Col- 
legian. Assisting him are Barbara 
Nahlovsky, Olga Harcovitz, Phyllis 
Houran, Mary Stebbins, Martha Mc- 
Afie, Ray Fuller, Red Peckham, Fred 
Pula, Ed Rachleff, and Art Peck. 

not favor students completely ignoring 
these planned activities in order that 
they may study, but I also believe 
that anyone understanding students 
cannot say that young people at col- 
lege will ignore an extra-special week- 
end like this so that they may grind 
for Saturday classes. 

The Carnival Ball is scheduled to 
end at 2 a.m. Saturday morning. No 
one will go to bed until 3 or 4 o'clock 
that morning. Now, with classes start- 
ing at 8 o'clock, this same Saturday 
morning, no student who attended the 
ball will be in the proper, rested con- 
dition necessary for a full, attentive 
participation in classes. Many stu- 
dents will surely cut for this very 
reason they will need the sleep. 

Secondly, Washington's birthday 
falls on Friday of the Carnival Week- 
end. Many students, not attending the 
ball would like to spend the weekend 
at home, a vacation which helps many 
students to resume classes the follow- 
ing week with renewed spirit. With 
Saturday classes, these students must 
spend the holiday weekend here at 
MSC, only half-heartedly participat- 
ing in the Winter Carnival because of 
lack of funds or other reasons. 

In deciding this question, the Dean's 
Office need not establish a precedent 
for cancelling Saturday classes of 
Carnival Weekend. Why? Because the 
Dean's Office has done this once be- 
NIVAL IN 1936, AGAIN IN 1937. 
Why can't this same thing be done 
again? I believe that the Dean's Of- 
fice should look at this question realis- 
tically and with common sense.

Interested to find out what Stat, 
students are thinking about atomic 
energy) our Inquiring reporter invaded 
the Lib, Mem Hall, and the Colleg. 
Store. These are the answers to her 
question "What do you think should 
be done with atomic energy?" 

Al Alkon '49: Research into the 
peace-time potentialities of atomic 
energy should be continued. Its de 
structive powers should not be COO 
■idered In these experiments. 

Estelle Freeman and Adriei 
Zaeks '17: Atomic energy should be 
made known and everyone should have 
its advantages. It should be controlled 
bj a central hoard so it won't be 
for destructive purposes. 

Ethel Cosmos '4C>: I think they 
should stop using the atomic bomb 
completely because it could desti 
mankind if il got in the hands of the 
wrong people. 

Fred Richardson '48: Give it to tin- 
basketball team! 

Mort Gilbert '49: Don't give the 
secret away. We should keep it a se- 
cret as much as possible and advance 
it as much as we can because if other 
nations discover the secret, they will 
develop it further and leave us at a 

Eva Schiffer '4<>: We no longer have 
the choice of whether or not to keep 
the principles of atomic energy a se- 
cret. We ourselves discovered it first 
only by a narrow margin of time. I 
believe, therefore, that its peace-time 
use should be controlled by a central 
international commission and revealed 
at their discretion. 

Adrian Marcinowski, Stockbridge: I 
think it should be totally destroyed 
and no nation should have access to 
any former plans. 

C. L. Kuralowicz '4<>: Nothing can 
be done to control this force — except 
man's adaptation to it. See how little 
we have controlled science up to the 
present — wars, conflicts, and mis- 
understanding seem to be inevitable. 
Bernadette Buckley '47: There is no 
sense to keep the plans of the atomic 
bomb a secret and the only way that 
we can be sure it will not be used 
unwisely is to have all nations give 
their discoveries to the U.N.O., where 
they will be developed for the benefit 
of the entire world instead of indivi- 
dual nations. 

James Gerrarghty '49: The secret of 
atomic energy should be released with- 
out any reservations to the entire 
world. It cannot be kept a secret for 
long and the best guarantee against 
its misuse is universal utilization of it 
Therese Conlon '49: The secret 
should be put under control of a 
U.N.O. Security Council. The Council 
consisting of members from all na- 

Iris Cooper '47: I think that the 

control of atomic energy should be 

given to the U.N.O. Security Council. 

Frank Bukoski '49: U.S. should keep 

the secret itself and improve on it. 

Pauline Baines '48: The control 
should be given to either the U.N.O. 
or a specially planned commission 
which would not only protect the 
world but put this energy to a profit- 
able use for all nations. 

Paul Smith '48: Atomic energy 
should be utilized for the purpose of 
bettering Society, of fostering a 
peaceful world — and of engendering a 
desire for scientific discoveries to be 
used toward constructive rather than 
destructive ends. 

Coolridge W. Wood '48: I feel that 
atomic energy could be utilized to the 
! greatest degree by all nations if the 
individual differences between nation? 
were pat into the background an- 
greater emphasis stressed on the i 
structive rather than destructive pur- 

L. T. Kennedy '49: Share it, but 
wisely. We cannot give it for it is not 
ours to give. United States has only 
been entrusted with its protection. Did 
not scientists from all parts of the 
world contribute to the pioneering ■ 
this great wonder? Are they not en- 
titled to their share in the secret ? Th« 
question is not how can we hide or 
destroy this secret, but how can wt 
develope our society in a world where 
one atomic bomb might destroy the 
progress of human endeavor. Secrecy

Utd lack of activity on campus. 

Boom! The first Winter Carnival 
began when a bomb was set off at th" 
i ege Pond to open activities. Ski- 
ing, skating, snow sculptures, the Ball, 

Carnival queen, and even a grand 
display of fireworks were many of the 
features of the weekend. 

» arnival Balls became more 
extravagant each year, with decora- 
tions and trimmings depicting the ice 
and snow of winter. The 1940 Winter 

arnival Ball stands out among the 
bean as a unique and very striking 
affair. For years, the Ball had been 
held in the Drill Hall, just at it is 
this year, but in that year, the fea- 
ture event was moved next door into 
p I'hys. Ed. Cage, which was decor- 
ated in a very distinctive manner. The 
entire Cage, half the size of a foot- 
ball field, was converted into the 
f of an Antartic frolic, with a 

hmplete curtain of streamers from 
l ■ balcony to the floor forming a 
fone in which the band was centered. 

Nautical settings and glacial effects 
Completed the transformation of the 

^age balcony into the deck of the 

S. Antartic. A special lighting ef- 
If-ct was used to give the illusion of 
p "aurora australis," the southern 
lights. The dancers appeared to be on 
the deck of a ship, . while the cage 
was the Antartic Sea. Benny- 
's band was seen floating on an 

wberg, the patrons and chaperons

Students Select Queen 

"arnival Queens were chosen quite 
! ferently at first, than they were in 
*st few years. To choose a Queen 
id her court, the entire student body 
°ted for a group of 8 girls. At the 

Ball, one of the selected group was 
chosen Queen by a special staff of 
judges, or chaperons, or, as in one 
year, by a group of photographers. 
Today the students do not choose a 
group of 8, but the entire court and 
the Queen is chosen at the Ball, gener- 
ally by chaperons. 

Snow Sculpturing 

Snow sculpturing, an annual feature 
of the Winter Carnival, has been fe- 
verishly participated in by the frater- 
nities in the past and by the sororities 
at present. An incentive is offered to 
all members of sororities because in 
1939 and '40 Theta Chi won, and 
Alpha Gamma Rho captured the first 
prize in '41, '42, and '43, whereas a 
sorority has won only once— Pi Beta 
last year. The sculpturing themes 
have been varied, and in tune with the 
times, with Theta Chi's "Ferdinand 
the Bull" in '39, Alpha Gamma Etho'l 
"Icy Grip of the Far North", and Pi 
Phi's "Ski Trooper". 

However, carnivals without snow 
haven't phased committee's in the pasi 
as evidenced in a past Collegian ar- 
ticle headed "Don't Read This If Snow 
Is More Than One Inch Deep". 

"The best laid plans of men and 
mice, May turn out to be not so nice," 
says the pessimist in prospects of a 
snowless Snow Carnival. But real en- 
thusiasts of this season, with a shake 

lawns for the contest. In the lattei 
case, the contest will close a little 
later in the evening and judging will 
take place after dark!" 

Ctirnicul Committee I'm a* 
Of the nine Carnivals held to date, 
two of them have been minus snow. 
In both of these roller skating was 
substituted for ice skating on the Col 
lege Pond; and to snow sculpture 
fraternities were forced to go north 
for their snow and bring it hack with 

one, or 2 foot layer, is all the Winter 
Carnival Committee needs to complete 

their plans for the lt)th annual Whi- 
te! Carnival. As the Collegian goes 
to puss, and this reporter looks out 
the window (over the top of a type- 
writer), we see snow gently kissing 
the earth's surface. It seems that the 
nightly prayer meetings of the com- 
mitter, at which their devotional 
hymn, "let It Snow, Let It Snow" is 
fervently sung have melted the heart 
of the "Snowman".

Student Life Committee 
Approves Social Plans 

If you are planning | dance, organ- 
izing a new fraternity, or starting 
an honor society, you will have the 
opportunity of facing the Student 
Life Committee. This committee con- 
sists of ten faculty members who act 
in an advisory capacity to the admin- 
istration in regard to organized social 

The committee dates back to the 
days of Mass. "Aggie", when it was 
composed of only five mendiers. 
Through the development at M.S.C., it 
helped organize the sorority and 
fraternity system. When the rushing 
rules were set up by the Panhellenic 
and the Initerfraternity councils, it 
was the Student Life Committee which 
approved of those rules that are in 
existence today. It approved of the 
formation of Adelphia and Isogon. 
Last year when the Scrolls, the lopho 
more honor society, was organized, 
the Student Life Committee advised 
the Administration to approve. 

At present, the committee meets 
»nly whenever special problems arise. 
Therefore, Professor Thayer, who is 
the chairman, acts for the committer 
in every day matters. Its greatest con- 
cerns, tU| year, have been the dances 
run by various organizations on cam- 
pus. The hours of the dance, the or- 
chestra which is engaged, end the 
chaperons must all be approved by 
this committee. Thus when you are 
dancing in the Drill Hall Friday night, 
at the Winter Carnival Ball, just re- 
member that the Student Life Com- 
mittee gave its approval. Plans for the 
immediate future consist mainly of 
reorganizing the fraternities which 
were discontinued during the war

"As usual, much attention will be 
devoted to fraternity competition in 
sculpturing. Figures, this year, must 
be molded from mud. Judging of the 
entries will take place at sundown on 
Friday evening. In case the mud dries 
up, however, fraternities may bor- 
row sorority presidents and drape 
them gracefully (if possible) on the 

them. In other words, the odds are 
about five to one in favor of snow for 
this weekend. Often there has been no 
snow until the very first day or night 
of the big weekend; and member! of 
the committees of yore were 
walking the campus in deep prayer, 
hoping for that wonderful white stuff 
on the morrow.
